Saunders Digit Graphics

This demonstrates Saunders plots of trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions. Given a function at a complex number , the real part, imaginary part, absolute value, or argument of can be expressed in base as . A Saunders graphic shows the chosen digit encoded in the colors of squares centered at the corresponding complex -values.
