# Baiocchi Figures for Polyiamonds

A *Baiocchi figure* is a figure
formed by joining copies of a polyform and having the maximal
symmetry for the polyform's class.
For polyiamonds, that means the symmetry of a regular hexagon,
or 6-way rotary with reflection.
If a polyiamond lacks cell-axial bilateral symmetry (see
illustration at right), its Baiocchi figures
must be Galvagni figures or contain Galvagni figures.
Claudio
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 polyiamonds
of orders 1 through 9.
Not all these solutions are uniquely minimal.
