Tile Tool: A Graphical Interface for the Exploration of Generalized Penrose Tilings
Sanford P. Ressler
A graphical system to experiment with non-periodic tilings of a plane has been developed as part of research supported by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) and the National Bureau of Standards (NBS). Non-periodic tilings have several properties which may be useful in the domain of security printing. Documents such as currency, stocks, bonds, and checks which have values much greater than the material they are composed of, are security documents. The forging of such documents has continued to be a problem as access to sophisticated equipment becomes widespread.
