The Geometry of the Cordovan Polygons

Antonia Redondo Buitrago, EncarnaciĆ³n Reyes Iglesias

This article is focused mainly in the study of the Cordovan proportion and its geometric properties. We present some general results linked with the regular octagon and with several polygons not considered before. From this proportion we find new polygonal shapes. The combination of these shapes will allow us to generate beautiful patterns and tilings by non regular polygons.
