Mathematicians (D. Smith, J.S. Myers, C.S. Kaplan and C. Goodman-Strauss) have finally discovered an elusive ‘einstein’ tile! A 13-sided tile called “the hat” forms a pattern that covers an infinite plane yet it cannot repeat, making it a long-sought shape known as an “einstein.” A sample of that pattern is shown here.

ApreiodicTile
Although the name “einstein” conjures up the iconic physicist, it comes from the German ein stein, meaning “one stone,” referring to the single tile. The einstein sits in a weird purgatory between order and disorder. Though the tiles fit neatly together and can cover an infinite plane, they are aperiodic, meaning they can’t form a pattern that repeats. Image courtesy : Robert Fathauer
