Geometry and Pattern in Nature 1: Exploring the shapes of diatom frustules with Johan Gielis' Superformula.

Geometry and Pattern in Nature 1: Exploring the shapes of diatom frustules with Johan Gielis' Superformula.: "I have always been intrigued by geometry and patterns. Examining diatom
frustules for the first time under the microscope, I was captivated by
the perfection of their symmetry. It was through my motivation to find
out more about the precise regularity in the simple, but perfect,
frustule forms that I came across Johan Gielis' Superformula, a
fascinating concept that interlinks a number of shapes found in living
organisms through variations on a single mathematical equation."
