**p = e ^{cos(Î¸)} – 2 cos(4 Î¸) + sin^{5}(Î¸/12)**

or in ActionScript:

**var r:Number = Math.exp(Math.cos(i)) – 2 * Math.cos(i * 4) + Math.pow(Math.sin(i / 12), 5);**

r = radius, Î¸ = angle. Figure out the x and y from there.

Randomly scale, position, rotate. Coat with bevel and dropshadow. Bake at 350Ëš for 30 minutes. Serves 5.

Dug up in Computers and the Imagination by Clifford Pickover.

Willem Van den Broeckjust a warning that the suggested temp of 350Â° is Fahrenheit. Don’t bake them at 350Â°C cause then you’re in for a treat. Believe me, i know.

duffySo where’s the Flash? You offer Actionscript, but no Flash file demonstrating it?
