Serial polar transformations of simple geometries. (English) Zbl 1060.51500
Summary: Complex forms can be generated by application of geometric transformations to elementary shapes and tessellations. The polar coordinate conversion used in conjunction with standard symmetry operations creates unusual results. The appearance of these forms is dependent on the starting shape, the operations performed, and the order of those operations, giving rise to a wide variety of images.
In this paper serial application of geometric transformation operations to a square is explored.
