The SquarcleWhat's a squarcle? Why it's a circle and a square, at the same time! It also appears to be a 3d rotating sine wave. #2 20110812 17:35:01
Re: The SquarcleHi circlemaker; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20110813 06:56:46

Re: The Squarcle
That's cool. So the idea has been around for a while then? I can't say I'm surprised given the simplicity of it. #6 20110813 15:26:32
Re: The Squarcle
Nothing wrong with rediscovering things. Your way actually makes the idea clear. I only knew it as a fact, I did not know why. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #7 20110813 18:07:27
Re: The SquarcleI made another, simpler version of the squarcle that perhaps lends better to it's name: #8 20110813 21:35:25
