In geometry, the tetraheptagonal tiling is a uniform tiling of the hyperbolic plane. It has Schläfli symbol of r{4,7}. Geometry is a branch of mathematics concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. A mathematician who works in the field of geometry is called a geometer. In mathematics, hyperbolic geometry is a non-Euclidean geometry. The parallel postulate of Euclidean geometry is replaced with: In geometry, the Schläfli symbol is a notation of the form {p,q,r,...} that defines regular polytopes and tessellations.

## Symmetry A half symmetry [1+,4,7] = [7,7] construction exists, which can be seen as two colors of heptagons. This coloring can be called a rhombiheptaheptagonal tiling. The dual tiling is made of rhombic faces and has a face configuration V4.7.4.7.

In hyperbolic geometry, a uniformhyperbolic tiling is an edge-to-edge filling of the hyperbolic plane which has regular polygons as faces and is vertex-transitive. It follows that all vertices are congruent, and the tiling has a high degree of rotational and translational symmetry.
