Baiocchi Figures for Polykagomes
A Baiocchi figure is a figure
formed by joining copies of a polyform and having the maximal
symmetry for the polyform's class.
For polykagomes, that means the symmetry of a regular hexagon,
or 6-way rotary with reflection.
Claudio Baiocchi proposed the idea in January 2008.
Baiocchi figures first appeared in Erich Friedman's
Math Magic for that month.
A polykagome is a polyform composed of adjacent cells on the
Here are minimal known Baiocchi figures for polykagomes
of orders 1 through 5.
Not all these solutions are uniquely minimal.
