Trigonometric tangles3: the fractals
See also: https://manasataramgini.wordpress.com/2016/05/06/theastroidthedeltoidandthefishwithinthefish/ This exploration began in days of youth shortly after we learned about complex numbers. It culminated only much later in adulthood when we discovered for ourselves a class of fractal curves related to a celebrated curve discovered … Continue reading

Trigonometric tangles2
We had earlier described our exploration of the spirograph, hypocycloids, epicycloids and related curves. In course of our study of the śaiva tantras of the kaula tradition we started thinking about a remarkable piece of imagery mentioned in them. Tantras … Continue reading
