Abstract

A continuous measure of symmetry and the Voronoi entropy of 2D patterns representing Voronoi diagrams emerging from the Penrose tiling were calculated. A given Penrose tiling gives rise to a diversity of the Voronoi diagrams when the centers, vertices, and the centers of the edges of the Penrose rhombs are taken as the seed points (or nuclei). Voronoi diagrams keep the initial symmetry group of the Penrose tiling. We demonstrate that the continuous symmetry measure and the Voronoi entropy of the studied sets of points, generated by the Penrose tiling, do not necessarily correlate. Voronoi diagrams emerging from the centers of the edges of the Penrose rhombs, considered nuclei, deny the hypothesis that the continuous measure of symmetry and the Voronoi entropy are always correlated. The Voronoi entropy of this kind of tiling built of asymmetric convex quadrangles equals zero, whereas the continuous measure of symmetry of this pattern is high. Voronoi diagrams generate new types of Penrose tiling, which are different from the classical Penrose tessellation.
