COMMENTS

We build the Hofstetter4fold tiling as follows:
 H_0 corresponds to a 2 X 2 square:
+++
 
+ +
 
+++
O
 for any k >= 0, H_{k+1} is obtained by arranging 4 copies of H_k, rotated by 0, 90, 180, 270 degrees clockwise respectively, as follows:
+.......+
. 90.
+.......+ +.......+ ....+
. . .0 . . .
. . > . ..... .
. . . . 180.
+.......+ +.......+.......+
O O .270 .
+.......+
 note that:
 the copy rotated by 0 degrees hides some squares on the copies rotated by 90 and 270 degrees,
 the copy rotated by 90 degrees hides some squares on the copy rotated by 180 degrees,
 the copy rotated by 180 degrees hides some squares on the copy rotated by 270 degrees,
 the Hofstetter4fold tiling corresponds to the limit of H_k as k tends to infinity,
 in this sequence we consider only connected tiles (whose squares are vertically or horizontally adjacent); disconnected tiles made up of two diagonally adjacent squares are counted as two distinct connected tiles.
