Three-dimensional Euclidean nets from two-dimensional hyperbolic tilings: kaleidoscopic examples

Ramsden, Stuart; Robins, Vanessa; Hyde, Stephen


We present a method for geometric construction of periodic three-dimensional Euclidean nets by projecting two-dimensional hyperbolic tilings onto a family of triply periodic minimal surfaces (TPMSs). Our techniques extend the combinatorial tiling theory of Dress, Huson & Delgado-Friedrichs to enumerate simple reticulations of these TPMSs. We include a taxonomy of all networks arising from kaleidoscopic hyperbolic tilings with up to two distinct tile types (and their duals, with two distinct...[Show more]
