Spirograph theory: A framework for calculations on digitized straight lines. (English) Zbl 0545.68098
Introducing diagrams called ’Spirographs’ a general theory is developed with which one can easily perform calculations on various aspects to digitized straight lines. The mathematics of the theory establishes a link between digitized straight lines and the theory of numbers (Farey series, continued fractions).
