boat, a MATLAB code which considers the boat tiling puzzle, a smaller version of the eternity puzzle. The boat puzzle specifies a region R composed of 756 30-60-90 triangles, and a set of 21 "tiles", each consisting of 236 30-60-90 triangles, and seeks an arrangement of the tiles that exactly covers the region.
The boat puzzle was devised as a follow up to the trinity puzzle (4 tiles), and the whale puzzle (8 tiles) and a warmup to the eternity puzzle (209 tiles). It represents a subset of the Guenter Stertenbrink solution of the eternity puzzle.

boat is available in a MATLAB version.
boundary_word_drafter, a MATLAB code which describes the outline of an object on a grid of drafters, or 30-60-90 triangles, using a string of symbols that represent the sequence of steps tracing out the boundary.
eternity, a MATLAB code which considers the eternity puzzle, which considers an irregular dodecagon shape that is to be tiled by 209 distinct pieces, each formed by 36 contiguous 30-60-90 triangles, known as polydrafters.
eternity_tile, a MATLAB code which considers the individual tiles of the eternity puzzle, 209 distinct pieces, each formed by 36 contiguous 30-60-90 triangles, known as polydrafters.
pram, a MATLAB code which considers the pram puzzle, a smaller version of the eternity puzzle. The pram puzzle specifies a region R composed of 2304 30-60-90 triangles, and a set of 64 "tiles", consisting of 36 30-60-90 triangles, and seeks an arrangement of the tiles that exactly covers the region.
serenity, a MATLAB code which considers the serenity puzzle, a smaller version of the eternity puzzle. The serenity puzzle specifies a dodecagonal region R composed of 288 30-60-90 triangles, and a set of 8 "tiles", each consisting of 36 30-60-90 triangles, and seeks an arrangement of the tiles that exactly covers the region.
trinity, a MATLAB code which considers the trinity puzzle, a smaller version of the eternity puzzle. The trinity puzzle specifies a region R composed of 144 30-60-90 triangles, and a set of 4 "tiles", T1, T2, T3 and T4, each consisting of 36 30-60-90 triangles, and seeks an arrangement of the four tiles that exactly covers the region.
whale, a MATLAB code which considers the whale tiling puzzle, a smaller version of the eternity puzzle. The whale puzzle specifies a region R composed of 288 30-60-90 triangles, and a set of 8 "tiles", each consisting of 36 30-60-90 triangles, and seeks an arrangement of the tiles that exactly covers the region.
