Designed and programed by Kerry Strand and Larry Jenkins. Color coordination and plotting techniques by Gary Craigmile

This is an example of the application of parametric equations. To generate the basic shape, T goes through one cycle of the cosine curve, from 0 to 2π. The long axis coordinate is then proportional to COS (5T) and the short axis coordinate is proportional to COS (11T). Three different line widths, each with a different color, were plotted overlaying each other. Produced on a CalComp plotter.
