Drawing Plants With Mathematics

I really love to draw plants, because they always remind me of good things such as peace, beauty, love, kindness, etc. In this post you can see four images with their mathematical descriptions. I have created these images by trigonometric functions. Also, in my previous posts you can see more images that I created with mathematical formulas: Drawing Birds in Flight With Mathematics, These Are Mathematical Sets.

This image shows 4,000 circles. For k=1,2,3,...,4000 the center of the k-th circle is (X(k), Y(k)) and the radius of the k-th circle is R(k), where

X(k)=(2k/4000)+(1/28)sin(42πk/4000)+(1/9)(sin(21πk/4000))8+(1/4)(sin(21πk/4000))6sin((2π/5)(k/4000)12),

Y(k)=(1/4)(k/4000)2+(1/4)((sin(21πk/4000))5+(1/28)sin(42πk/4000))cos((π/2)(k/4000)12),

R(k)=(1/170)+(1/67)(sin(42πk/4000))2(1-(cos(21πk/4000))4).

This image shows 12,000 circles. For k=1,2,3,...,12000 the center of the k-th circle is (X(k), Y(k)) and the radius of the k-th circle is R(k), where

X(k)=(2k/12000)+(1/7)(sin(91πk/12000))8(1-(cos(πk/24000)cos(3πk/24000))10)+(1/4)(sin(91πk/12000))6sin((2π/5)(k/12000)12),

Y(k)=(1/3)sin(πk/24000)+(1/4)(sin(91πk/12000))5cos((π/2)(k/12000)12)(1-(cos(πk/24000)cos(3πk/24000))10),

R(k)=(1/270)+(1/140)(sin(182πk/12000))2(1-(cos(91πk/12000))4)+(1/80)(cos(91πk/12000))6.

This image shows 30,000 circles. For k=1,2,3,...,30000 the center of the k-th circle is (X(k), Y(k)) and the radius of the k-th circle is R(k), where

X(k)=(3/2)(sin((2πk/30000)+(π/3)))7,

Y(k)=(1/4)(cos(6πk/30000))2(2-(sin((2πk/30000)+(π/3)))4-2(cos(πk/30))2)-(1/2)(cos((2πk/30000)+(π/3)))2,

R(k)=(1/140)+(1/70)(cos((2πk/30000)+(π/3)))10.
