Comment on "Decagonal andQuasi-Crystalline Tilings in MedievalIslamic Architecture"

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Lu and Steinhardt (Reports, 23 February 2007, p. 1106) claimed the discovery of a large, potentially quasi-crystalline Islamic tiling in the Darb-i Imam shrine but regard the earlier Maragha tiling, previously described as quasiperiodic, as a small isolated motif. We demonstrate that the Darb-i Imam pattern is periodic and that the quasi-crystalline discs superimposed on its lattice are derivatives of the Maragha pattern.
