# Mixed Polyiamond Compatibility

## Introduction.

Two or more polyiamonds are compatible if there is a polyiamond that each of them can tile. Here I show some compatibilities for two polyiamonds of different orders. Many of them were found by Mike Reid or by Margarita Lukjanska, Andris Cibulis, and Andy Liu, whose article in Volume 33 of the Journal of Recreational Mathematics proves that some pairs of polyiamonds are not compatible. Mike has since sent us more incompatibility proofs. If you find a smaller solution or solve an unsolved case, please write.
