Golden Rectangular Solid 1.0

"Golden Rectangular Solid" snapshot

Visualize a 3-dimensional golden-rectangular-solid that is analagous to the 2-dimensional golden-rectangle, which can be sub-divided recursively so that each left-over rectangular solid has the same proportions as the original rectangle.

Description from the Publisher
One might wonder if there is a 3-dimensional golden-rectangular-solid that is analagous to the 2-dimensional golden-rectangle, which can be sub-divided recursively so that each left-over rectangular solid has the same proportions as the original rectangular solid. The 3D analogue to the 2D golden rectangle does indeed exist, and is depicted by this application.

Phyllotaxis is the study of the successive arrangement of radial parts of a growing plant, such as the leaves on a stem, or the seeds in the head of a sunflower. This application generates a simple phyllotaxic arrangement of circles.

Mnemonic Curve is a game in which the object is to remember and repeat a sequence of mouse-clicks within a group of circles. Mnemonic Curve demonstrates principles governing our ability to remember a sequence of choices.

This application demonstrates the curious relationships wherein a tetrahedron can be inscribed in a cube in two different ways and a cube can be inscribed in a dodecahedron in 5 different ways.

This application is a laboratory for the creation of automata. An automaton is a system of circles moving relative to one another in a hierarchical fashion which create cruves which are a superset of epicycloids and hypocycloids.
