Create a mathematical mosaic, then reflect and rotate it to make quilt-like patterns. The patterns can be saved as bitmap files.The quilts are made from Cayley tables, which show the results of combining elements in a set using various operations. The resulting symmetrical patterns illustrate the sets' mathematical properties. The following tables can be made :
Addition mod n (shown at left)
Multiplication mod n
Dihedral groups D3 and D4
Direct sums Z2+Z2, Z2+Z2+Z2 and Z2+Z3
Quaternion group Q8
