Mathematical Objects: Aperiodic monotile with Chaim Goodman-Strauss

Mathematical Objects

A conversation about mathematics inspired by the new aperiodic monotile. Presented by Katie Steckles and Peter Rowlett, with special guest Chaim Goodman-Strauss.

The paper announcing the discovery is An aperiodic monotile by David Smith, Joseph Samuel Myers, Craig S. Kaplan and Chaim Goodman-Strauss.

Chaim was recording from MoMath in New York, which will be running a creative artwork competition based on the monotile with UKMT. Chaim also mentioned a meeting in Oxford: Hatfest: celebrating the discovery of an Aperiodic Monotile.

Note: This podcast was recorded after the discovery of the ‘hat’ and ‘turtle’ monotiles but before the announcement of the ‘spectre’ monotile. Confused? Don’t worry, we explain in the episode!

Eight copies of the 'hat' aperiodic monotile.
