Notes on notes on the plane

Sun 2 Aug 2015 by mskala Tags used: , ,

I have posted a detailed set of notes (PDF file) describing the theory behind my Black Swan Suite, detailing the endless chase of Elmer and Daffy across Penrose, pinwheel, and other nonperiodic tilings of the plane. Fans of music and computational geometry may find the document interesting. At the very least, it was fun to typeset.

Elmer chases Daffy in 1/sqrt(3) time


Over my brain but happy to see you going there.

I'd have guessed that a right angle corresponds to a tempered minor third, not major.

True - it'd be 300 cents, close to the 315-cent just minor third. If I said major, that's an error I'll have to fix when I update the document. Thanks for catching it.
