Tiling, discrete, polyominoes, algebraic applications to tiling, rectangles, decidability
In this paper we study the hierarchical structure of the 2-d polyominoes. We introduce a new infinite family of polyominoes which we prove tiles a strip. We discuss applications of algebra to tiling. We discuss the algorithmic decidability of tiling the infinite plane Z x Z given a finite set of polyominoes. We will then discuss tiling with rectangles. We will then get some new, and some analogous results concerning the possible hierarchical structure for the 3-d polycubes.
