Ludwig Danzer and Gerrit van Ophuysen - A species of planar triangular tilings with inflation factor $\sqrt{-\tau}$



LUDWIG DANZER AND GERRIT VAN OPHUYSEN, Universität Dortmund, Facherbereich Mathematik, Lehrstuhl II, 44221  Dortmund, Germany
A species of planar triangular tilings with inflation factor $\sqrt{-\tau}$


Consider the set ${\cal F}= \{A,X\}$ of two right triangles in $\bbd
E^2$ with sides having squared lengths 1, $\tau$, $1+ \tau$ and $\tau$, $\tau^2$, $\tau+\tau^2$ respectively. These can be glued together (in only one way) to form a third right triangle $X \mathop{\dot\cup}
A$ with sides of squared length $1+ \tau$, $\tau+\tau^2$, $(q +
\tau)^2$. We then consider the inflation rule infl(A):=X, $\textrm{infl}
(X) : = X \mathop{\dot\cup}A$. Interpreting $\bbd
E^2$ as $\bbd C$ the inflation factor $\eta$ becomes $i \sqrt{\tau}$ which is a complex Pisot-number. The species ${\cal S}({\cal F}, \textrm{infl})$ of all global ${\cal F}$-tilings created by $\mbox{infl}$ has a unique deflation (`` infl-1'') and hence is aperiodic. The set of all vertices can be shown to be a ``model set'' (Robert Moody), so the Fourier-transformation of the autocorrelation function is ``pure point'' with the Bragg-peaks located on the $\bbd Z$-module $\frac
{3-\tau}{5} \left\langle \left( \begin{array}{c} \sqrt{\tau} \\ 0
\end{ar...
...} \right)
\left( \begin{array}{c}0 \\ \tau \end{array} \right) \right\rangle
_Z$.

With ${\cal F}_c := \{ A, B, C, X, Y, Z \}$, where B and C are congruent to A, while Y and Z are congruent to X, but all differently coloured, and

\begin{displaymath}\displaylines{
\textrm{infl}_c(A):= X \quad \textrm{infl}_c(X...
...c(C):= Z \quad \textrm{infl}_c(Z) := Z \mathop{\dot\cup}B\cr
}
\end{displaymath}

we receive the species ${\cal S}({\cal F}_{c}, \textrm{infl}_{c})$ of coloured tilings. In contrast to ${\cal S}({\cal F}, \textrm{infl})$ the coloured species can also be defined by a perfect local matching rule. In fact the 42 coloured vertex- stars may serve as an atlas.
