Similar Polyaboloes Tiling an Octagon
A polyabolo or polytan is a plane figure
formed by joining equal isosceles right triangles along equal edges.
A few polyaboloes can form a quasi-regular octagon
by joining variously sized copies of themselves.
Here I show some examples.
The tilings shown use as few tiles as I know how,
and are not necessarily unique under this condition.
If you find a tiling with fewer tiles, please write.
