Visualizing Superellipses

This Demonstration shows the superellipse curve as a function of its parameters , , and .
The superellipse has parametric equations , , for in the first quadrant (, ); multiplying by gives the equations for the curve in the other quadrants.
The special case gives an ellipse; the further restriction gives a circle.
