Abstract

Croft, Falconer and Guy asked: what is the smallest integer n such that an n-reptile in the plane has a hole? Motivated by this question, we describe a geometric method of constructing reptiles in Rd, especially reptiles with holes. In particular, we construct, for each even integer n ≥ 4, an n-reptile in R2 with holes. We also answer some questions concerning the topological properties of a reptile whose interior consists of infinitely many components.
