Math21a 2001, First Mathematica Lab, Selection of Curves

We selected a few curves. Like in the Fall 2000 ((hall of fame)), it was hard to choose. Our criteria were originality, esthetics, surprise and reproduceability. For example, the shape of the curve should not depend on the number of sampling points. Sometimes, polygonal curves were obtained, where the path-length was too long in comparison to the choice of the "PlotPoints" parameter. In this case, changing that number would change the shape of the curve completely. Click on one of the thumbnails to see the corresponding picture.
