The arms of spiral galaxies are roughly logarithmic, as are the bands of tropical cyclones and many biological structures such as shells. These are spirals which make a constant angle with the line connecting any point to the centre. Rays of light emanating from the centre reflect off the spiral and burn the image of a second identical spiral, slightly rotated. [more] [code]

I post original stuff about maths, space, computational linguistics and other things that I like. This blog is meant to be accessible and interesting to people of all backgrounds. My undergrad was maths in Cambridge, and I'm now starting research in Speech and Language technology. Email me at If you're new, check out this overview of my posts. All code posted is in Mathematica.
