This Post is an attempt to collect beautiful mathematical art including *but not limited* to plots, complex plots, contour plots, fractals, surfaces and tilings.

In the comments, post your favorites. A description of what you post would be much appreciated.

By the way, read this post for the code of the attached *heart* and a few other plots.

If you like the idea, please reshare this to make the art collection bigger.

By the way, my avatar is also one of my favorites.

The heart curve can simply be written in polar coordinate See here

Plot this parametric equation in \(t\) as \(0<t<2\pi\)

\[ y_{1}=2+2\sin \ t\] \[ x_{1}=2+2\cos \ t\]

\[y_{2}=3+0.1\sin \ t\] \[ x_{2}=1+0.1\cos \ t\]

\[ y_{3}=3+0.1 \sin \ t\] \[ x_{3}=3+0.1 \cos \ t\]

\[ y_{4}=2-\sin \ 0.5t\] \[ x_{4}=2+ \cos \ 0.5t\]

It will bring a smile:)))

Enter this into google: sqrt(cos(x))

cos(300x)+sqrt(abs(x))-0.7)(4-x*x)^0.01 sqrt(6-x^2) from-4.5 to 4.5Log in to reply

Oh, let me offer this one that I made up: Knot Or Not?. Complicated parametric equations plot this one out, but the fun problem is, "If you tried to untangle this, will it just end up in a knot, or can it be untangled into a simple loop?"

It can be untangled into the trivial knot, ie, the loop. Yes?

Like how the CIA tweeted today, I can neither confirm nor deny this!
