Colloquium: “Escher’s tilings and ribbons”

Marshall University Math Colloquium
Friday, October 24, 2003

Kelli Hall
Marshall University

Abstract
Using combinatorial methods, M.C. Escher created repeating patterns of tilings with decorated squares, hoping to find every possible pattern. In this presentation, I will give an algebraic proof for his pictorial findings and then extend the mathematical approach to a few cases that involve ribbons.
