The original Heighway Dragon Curve as described in [gar1967]
, can be derived by a substitution tiling with one substitution rule and appropriate decoration.
However, it is not a FASS-curve because it is not self avoiding.
With the results in [pau2021]
it is possible to derive a substitution tiling which generates a Heighway Dragon FASS-Curve without disturbing self similarity.
In detail the decoration on the proto tile is shifted away from the corners in different ways. As a consequence of the combinatorics the number of substitution rules increases to four.
Furthermore the vertices of the FASS-curve are not preserved by the substitution rules.
The inflation factor `$q$`

is `$\sqrt{2}$`
