Summary Edit


A Lissajous curve, that can be expressed in parametric form as:

x=A\sin(at+\delta),\quad y=B\sin(bt)

with a=3, b=2 and \delta = \pi / 2. I created it with the following GNUplot code:

set samples 5000
set terminal svg
set output "Lissajous_curve_3by2.svg"

# plotting within a square
set size square

# remove most of information from the picture
set noxtic
set noytic
set key off

# plot
set parametric
plot [0:2*pi] sin(a*t + delta),sin(b*t) with lines linewidth 2

and then I post-processed with Inkscape
