Abstract

By studying the periodic drawings of the Dutch Artist M.C. Escher, we find that the simplest group of the seventeen wallpaper group, PI, can be 'visualized' in the upper halfplane as a symmetrical tessellation with self-similar properties. Iterative mappings are constructed and an algorithm is presented to automatically generate coloured patterns with this symmetry. This method can be used to create a great variety of artistic symmetrical patterns. © 1998 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
