### Tiling by Nested Polygons

Nested polygons generate logarithmic spiral curves and are good examples of contraction mappings.

We can use nested polygons to tile the plane and get beautiful tessellations:

These pictures are very easy to make using GeoGebra.

More tessellations and a few GeoGebra examples are here.

Hi;

Very beautiful. Hypnotic too.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
