Talk Abstract
In this talk, we present work done during an REU this past summer, in which we investigated tiling questions for rectangular annular regions using the set of T and skew tetrominoes. We briefly discuss our main result classifying which of these regions can be tiled, and then present the proof of a short corollary describing the number of ways one can tile some of these regions.
