Mai Valentine and Joey Wheeler continued to decide what to decorate for the party. Instead of copying the graph above formed by the following parametric equations \[ \begin{array}{rl} x(t) &= 16\sin^3(t)\\ y(t) &= 13\cos(t) - 5\cos(2t) - 2\cos(3t) - \cos(4t) \end{array} \]

they thought that creating the wave related to the heart curve, similar to the following example:

However, since some of their friends dislike jump discontinuities, they were concerned that

For all real \(t\), the wave graph of the parametric equations contains at least a jump discontinuity.

Does there exist a jump discontinuity of the wave graph, or were Joey and Mai imagining?
