In geometry, the truncated triapeirogonal tiling is a uniform tiling of the hyperbolic plane with a Schläfli symbol of tr{∞,3}.

Symmetry[edit]

Truncated triapeirogonal tiling with mirrors

The dual of this tiling represents the fundamental domains of [∞,3], *∞32 symmetry. There are 3 small index subgroup constructed from [∞,3] by mirror removal and alternation. In these images fundamental domains are alternately colored black and white, and mirrors exist on the boundaries between colors.

A special index 4 reflective subgroup, is [(∞,∞,3)], (*∞∞3), and its direct subgroup [(∞,∞,3)]+, (∞∞3), and semidirect subgroup [(∞,∞,3+)], (3*∞).[1] Given [∞,3] with generating mirrors {0,1,2}, then its index 4 subgroup has generators {0,121,212}.

An index 6 subgroup constructed as [∞,3*], becomes [(∞,∞,∞)], (*∞∞∞).

Related polyhedra and tiling[edit]

This tiling can be considered a member of a sequence of uniform patterns with vertex figure (4.6.2p) and Coxeter-Dynkin diagram CDel node 1.pngCDel p.pngCDel node 1.pngCDel 3.pngCDel node 1.png. For p < 6, the members of the sequence are omnitruncated polyhedra (zonohedrons), shown below as spherical tilings. For p > 6, they are tilings of the hyperbolic plane, starting with the truncated triheptagonal tiling.
