One-dimensional patterns. Flow charts for the one-dimensional patterns ; Examples of one-color and two-color, one-dimensional patterns --
Two-dimensional patterns. Flow charts for the two-dimensional patterns ; Examples of one-color and two-color, two-dimensional patterns (Patterns with no rotations ; Patterns with 180 degree rotations ; Patterns with 90 degree rotations ; Patterns with 120 degree rotations ; Patterns with 60 degree rotations) --
Problems in classification. Pattern dimension ; Compound patterns ; Pattern irregularities --
Appendixes. 1. The four rigid motions of the plane ; 2. The seven classes of one-dimensional design ; 3. Comparative notation for the two-color, two-dimensional patterns.

Publisher Synopsis

Art historians have long been aware of recurring symmetrical patterns of form and color in ancient, tribal, folk and applied arts. Lately, anthropologists have begun using 'symmetry analysis' as a Read more...
