Hypocycloid

In geometry, a hypocycloid is a special plane curve generated by the trace of a fixed point on a small circle that rolls within a larger circle. It is comparable to the cycloid but instead of the circle rolling along a line, it rolls within a circle. ==Properties== If k is an integer, then the curve is closed, and has k cusps (i.e., sharp corners,...

hypocycloid

A curve formed by the path of a point attached to a circle of radius b that rolls around the inside of a larger circle of radius a. The parametric equations for a hypocycloid can be written as: x = (a - b) cos t + b cos (a/b - 1)t, y = (a - b) sin t - b sin (a/b - 1)t. The type of hypocloid depend...
