2D embedding of the Fibonacci chain. The short and long distances S and L, generated by the intersection of the atomic surfaces with the physical space [{\bf V}^{\parallel}], are indicated. The atomic surfaces are represented by bars parallel to [{\bf V}^{\perp}]. Their lengths correspond to the projection of one unit cell (shaded) upon [{\bf V}^{\perp}].
