Quasicrystals are highly structured patterns which are not periodic. Unlike the crystalline structure of e.g. hexagons, a quasicrystal will never line up perfectly with a shifted copy of itself. Here such a structure is created as the interference pattern between 7 waves approaching the centre of the image at equal angles. The 2011 Nobel prize in Chemistry was awarded for the discovery of quasicrystals in chemical compounds. [video] [more] [code]

I post original stuff about maths, space, computational linguistics and other things that I like. This blog is meant to be accessible and interesting to people of all backgrounds. My undergrad was maths in Cambridge, and I'm now starting research in Speech and Language technology. Email me at If you're new, check out this overview of my posts. All code posted is in Mathematica.
