There are four flies on the vertices of a square of side a. Two males and two females. Male flies are diagonally opposite to each other. At a point of time they all started flying towards their next opposite sex with a common speed. They meet at the center. What's the equation of a particular fly's path.

TopNewestLogarithmic spirals have the property of being self-similar, which would apply in this case, because at any time, the 4 flies are at the vertices of a square chasing each other as before. In other words, scaling up the spirals will leave it looking the same as before, except maybe for rotation. – Michael Mendrin · 2 years, 7 months ago
