Quintic differentials and Penrose tilings
Philip Engel, Department of Mathematics, University of Georgia,

I will discuss work-in-progress with Peter Smillie on the construction of rhombus-tiled surfaces in moduli spaces of quintic (and higher) differentials. There are some intriguing connections to abelian varieties, quasicrystals, Hurwitz theory, modular forms, and Masur-Veech volumes.
