July 27, 2009 - David Reimann presents research at the 2009 Bridges Conference

Professor David Reimann presented his research "Text from Truchet Tiles" at the 12th Annual Bridges Conference held July 26-30 2009 in Banff, Alberta, Canada. His paper appears on pages 325-6 in the printed proceedings. The Bridges Organization fosters the mutual exchange of ideas among practicing mathematicians, scientists, artists, educators, musicians, writers, computer scientists, sculptures, dancers, weavers, and model builders. A nice article about the conference appears on the AMS website.

An example of a random Truchet tiling containing the text "Albion College Mathematics and Computer Science" is shown above. A darker color has been used for the text to increase its contrast
