I would like to thank my supervisor Associate Professor Helmer Aslaken for his guidance
and patience. Throughout all the hardships that I had in completing this thesis he was
always very understanding. Without his constant assurance and encouragement this
would not be possible. Also, I would like to thank my family and friends for all their
support and encouragement.
This thesis serves as an introductory text in understanding the symmetry classifications of
Escher's periodic tilings in Table 1 (see appendix). Firstly, it aims to provide the readers
an overview of the following classifications: symmetry group, isohedral type, Heesch
type and Escher's system. Secondly, armed with the knowledge of the classifications it
