In geometry, the alternated order-4 hexagonal tiling or ditetragonal tritetratrigonal tiling is a uniform tiling of the hyperbolic plane. It has Schläfli symbol of (3,4,4), h{6,4}, and hr{6,6}.


Uniform constructionsEdit

There are four uniform constructions, with some of lower ones which can be seen with two colors of triangles:

*443 3333 *3232 3*22
      =           =           =     =           =    
(4,4,3) = h{6,4} hr{6,6} = h{6,4}​12
