Some Nice Pictures of a Hyperbolic Tiling of the Poincaré Disk

Matthew Cook
Organization: California Institute of Technology

The Graphics Gallery picture "Hyperbolic Tiling of the Poincare Disk" (by I. Rivin) shows a tiling by infinite triangles such that for adjacent triangles ABC and BCD, AD is perpendicular to BC. This notebook generates pictures and mesmerizing animations of this tiling.
