Seminar: Guo -- Tiling Problems

Which rectangles can you tile by only using 1 by 2 tiles? What about 3
by 4 tiles? What about 2/3 by pi tiles? By examining a variety of
techniques, such as colouring, generating functions and graph theory,
we will attempt to answer most of your rectangular tiling problems, so
you can finally make peace with your bathroom decorator.
