Baiocchi Figures for Polyhings
A Baiocchi figure is a figure
formed by joining copies of a polyform and having the maximal
symmetry for the polyform's class.
that means the symmetry of a regular hexagon.
Baiocchi proposed the idea in January 2008.
Baiocchi figures first appeared in Erich Friedman's
Math Magic for that month.
Here are minimal known Baiocchi figures for polyhings
of orders 1 through 4.
Not all these solutions are uniquely minimal.
