hypotrochoids

2

Spirotechnics are related to two types of mathematical curves called hypotrochoids and epitrochoids, which are created by tracing the path of a point on one circle while it is rolled around the perimeter of another.

The distinction between the two is that hypotrochoids are created by rolling a circle inside a stationary circle, and epitrochoids are created by rolling a circle on the outside.

In Spirotechnics, multiple hypotrochoids and epitrochoids are nested within or outside each other, producing an endless variety of shapes.
