Abstract

We show that finite-range matching rules and growth rules exist for an infinite set of 2D pentagonal tilings other than the original Penrose tilings. There is a natural ordering of these tilings based on the range required for the rules. The results have implications for the determination of the atomic structure of icosahedral alloys.
