Rosettes from Op Art Patterns

This Demonstration gives some examples of rosettes produced from various op art patterns. You can choose aspects of shape and symmetry with the functions and that depend on the complex parameters and (defined in the Details).

DETAILS

The following results are relevant:
If, in the sum , unless , is a rosette function with -fold symmetry.
If, in the sum , unless , is a rosette function with -fold symmetry.
If, in the sum , , is a function with mirror symmetry.
The functions (cyclic) and (dihedral) are defined by and .
Pattern images are from [2].
