The order-6 hexagonal tiling is a regular tiling of the hyperbolic plane. 6 hexagons join at each vertex. It is self-dual.

It can be formed by alternating the order-6 square tiling.

Representations[edit | edit source]

The order-6 hexagonal tiling has the following Coxeter diagrams:

  • x6o6o () (main symmetry)
  • s4o6o () (as alternated order-6 square tiling)
  • o3o4s4*a () (alternating order-6 square tiling with half symmetry)
  • o6x6o3*a () (hexagons of two types)
