Prof talk: Animated Tilings.

Held in PHY 150, on 2019-03-20, at 4 pm.


By slowly varying the shapes of tiles in a tiling, it's possible to create fun and interesting abstract animations. Many of these animations are a good fit for the genre of looping mathematical GIFs that proliferate in social media. In this talk, I'll introduce a few core concepts from tiling theory and then discuss techniques for constructing tilings that evolve in space or in time.
