A tessellation or tiling of the plane is a collection of plane figures that fill the plane with no overlaps and no gaps.
One may also speak of tessellations of parts of the plane or of other surfaces.
Generalizations to higher dimensions are also possible.
The tessellation is perhaps most well-known today for its use in the art of M.C.
