The compatibility problem is to find a figure that can be tiled with each of a set of polyforms. Polyomino compatibility has been widely studied since the early 1990s.
Here I show the smallest known solutions for sets of one tetriamond, one pentiamond, and one hexiamond. The numbers tell how many cells the polyiamond has. If you find a smaller solution or solve an unsolved case, please write.
