Curves - popular mathematics

Math for dummies

Mathematics - beautiful science. We can talk about the beauty of mathematical formulas, the beauty of mathematical proofs, the beauty of geometric lines and many other...

We can call the many beautiful geometric lines that and allow us to talk about the beauty of mathematics in general and the beauty of geometry in particular.

Geometrical lines, for example, archimedean spiral, astroid, cardioid, cycloid, cissoid of Diocles, folium of Descartes, deltoid, lituus, logarithmic spiral, nephroid, limacon of Pascal, semicubic parabola, strophoid, sinusoid, epicycloid, hypocycloid, hyperbolic spiral, trohoid, rose, cochleoid, Fermat's spiral, lemniscate of Bernoulli, lemniscate of Gerono, tractrix, witch of Agnesi, Lissajous curve, hypotrochoid, epitrochoid, bicorn, lemniscate of Booth, seerpentine.

This is not just abstract lines, many objects in nature correspond to these lines, or their motion corresponds to these lines (for example see Logarithmic spiral in (EN), also other links to Wikipedia on

Curves - a geometric screensaver that displays the specified lines while the computer is idle. Curves allows you to view the construction of the curve (simple animation), tells the name of the curve, allows to see the position of the curve on the coordinate system.

Curves - beautiful mathematics on your desktop. ;)
