An interesting solution to sparsify the positions of the phase centers maintaining at the same time a high aperture efficiency consists in filling the array aperture with a number of tiles characterized by a different orientation, most notably polyominoes [6, 7].

It uses polyominoes which are plane geometric figures formed by joining one or more equal squares edge to edge (refer Figure 1).
[RK:] In Conditions, there were sections that reminded me of cellular automata, like Conway's Game of Life (1) and others where it seemed that you were exploring symmetries of the 10 x 10 grid, or arrangements of polyominoes. (2) I'm curious as to how much of this formal structure is pre-planned, and how much emerges organically from improvisations.
Do you happen to recall when and where he stated emphatically that the plural of "polyomino" is NOT "polyominos" but "polyominoes"?
