Author:Jeff Weeks
Description: Kali lets you draw symmetrical patterns based on any of the 17 tiling groups. It was written for a broad audience. Even the youngest children enjoy Kali. In particular, Kali does not assume the user knows how to read. For older students, Kali lets students systematically explore the wallpaper, frieze and rosette groups. The Show Singularities command and the Conway and IUC notation provide support for a theoretical analysis. Kali 5.1 now runs in twelve languages: Arabic, Chinese, Danish, English, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. Based on Kali for Unix by Nina Amenta.
