- designed and programmed by Kerry Strand and Larry Jenkins, color coordination and plotting techniques by Gary Craigmile.
This is an example of the application of parametric equations. to generate the basic shape, T goes through one cycle of the cosine curve from 0 to 2PL. The X coordinate is then proportional to COS and the Y-coordinate is proportional to COS. Three different line widths, each with a different color, were plotted overlaying each other.
