Maths is purdiful

This whole week I've been doing a lot of maths studying. Things like parametric curves, LaGrange theorems and funky functional sequences.

Naturally I've developed a bit of a love for pretty mathematical objects, so I wanted to share some with you.

  1. Our first contestant is the cardioid. She's a bit chubby on the sides but has a heart of gold.

  1. This little nugget followed from my experimentation with parameters of a curve I don't know the name of ... it's a flower if you haven't noticed.


  1. The Butterfly Curve is well known in some circles, but I found it by stumbling around wikipedia like a drunken madman

  1. There are likely to be other contestants I have yet to discover.

So, which curve do you think is the most beautifulest mathematical construct?
