Figure 33
An approximant for the Ammann–Beenker tiling. The tiles (a square and a rhomb) are the same in both the aperiodic and the periodic tiling. The large square is a unit cell of the approximant. The two small squares and four rhombs also form together a unit cell, and the pattern of these six tiles is repeated. The approximant has, of course, no eightfold symmetry.
