Perron Number Tiling Systems

   Four Programs for calculating Dr. Richard Kenyon's method for plane 
tilings from Perron numbers by substitutions.

The construction of self-similar tilings , Geom. and Func. Analysis 
6,(1996):417-488. Thurston showed that the expansion constant of a 
self-similar tiling of the plane must be a complex Perron number 
(algebraic integer strictly larger in modulus than its Galois conjugates 
except for its complex conjugate). Here we prove that, conversely, for 
every complex Perron number there exists a self-similar tiling. We also 
classify the expansion constants for self-similar tilings which have a 
rotational symmetry of order n.
