Synaptic Star

A hyperbolic tiling created using the Fractal Science Kit fractal generator. See for details.


A Hyperbolic Tiling replicates a polygon over the hyperbolic plane represented by the Poincare disk in such a way as to form a hyperbolic tiling pattern. The Poincare disk is a model for hyperbolic geometry that maps the hyperbolic plane onto the unit disk.
