Title : Got you surrounded
Abstract:
A shape's "Heesch Number" is the maximum number of times that one can surround the shape with copies of itself in concentric layers. I discuss the concept of Heesch Numbers, show examples of shapes with non-trivial Heesch Numbers, including a few new examples based on my own investigations, and point out the significance of Heesch Numbers to open questions in tiling theory.
