Reflecting a Regular Polygon across Its Sides in the Hyperbolic Plane

In the hyperbolic plane, given and , there is a unique positive real number such that the regular -gon of side length tiles the whole plane, with copies of touching at each vertex. This Demonstration shows how the tiling fails when the side length differs from .
