Abstract

Soon following Dan Shechtman's discovery of quasicrystals, Ágnes Csanády and her associates started producing beautiful quasicrystals of flowerlike morphology. The image of one of their specimen appeared on the Israeli postage stamp honoring Shechtman's discovery, his Nobel Prize, and the International Year of Crystallography.
