Abstract: We analytically and numerically verify that two-dimensional (2D) quasicrystalline matter waves can be formed from the free-time evolution of multiple Gaussian waves regularly distributed on a circular ring. We also demonstrate that an interesting recurrence phenomenon can be manifested by adding an extra Gaussian wave on the center of multiple Gaussian waves uniformly distributed on a ring. We finally employ an optical experiment for the coherent light passing through the mask to analogously illustrate the formation of 2D quasicrystalline patterns and the associated recurrence.
