OrderSix Radial Tessellations of the Plane, Using Elongated and Equilateral Hexagons, Rendered with Different ColoringSchemes
I explored radial tessellations of the plane, using only hexagons, in this earlier post. Orderthree tessellations of this type are the familiar regularhexagon tessellations of the plane. With higherorder allhexagon radial tessellations, though, the hexagons must be elongated, although they … Continue reading
