Cylindrical Mirror Anamorphosis
This Demonstration explores the cylindrical mirror anamorphosis of polar curves. When seen at a distance, the cylindrical anamorphic projection of an image appears undeformed in a cylindrical mirror placed in its center.
In this Demonstration, the cylindrical mirror has radius 1 and height 3. The viewpoint is located at . The reflected image is seen in the polar plane of the viewpoint. This image pane is perpendicular to the axis and at a distance of 1/10 from the axis.
The geometry and mathematics of this projection are covered in  and .
