Title: Tiling with arbitrary tiles


It is easy to tile the plane with dominoes (2x1 rectangles). It is also easy to tile the plane with trominoes (three 1x1 squares forming an L-shape). Of course, not every shape tiles the plane.

What happens when we increase the number of dimensions from two to three, or beyond?
