2D direct-space embedding of the Fibonacci chain as a modulated structure. The average period is [(3 - \tau)\hbox{S}]. The square lattice in the quasicrystal description shown in Fig.[link] is indicated by grey lines. The rod-like atomic surfaces are now inclined relative to [{\bf V}^{\parallel}] and arranged so as to give a saw-tooth modulation wave.
