I really love the poem about related Theorem of Descartes: “The Kiss Precise” (http://www.pballew.net/soddy.html)
Me too! In a subsequent post I will explain how I drew the figure—there is a different generalization of Descartes’ Theorem that can actually serve as the basis for a relatively simple computer program to draw Apollonian gaskets.
nice. what’s the algorithm, or are we supposed to figure it out?
Well, if you haven’t seen this before, it’s definitely worth studying the figure to see what patterns you can discern. I’ll explain the algorithm in another post!
That would be great, eagerly waiting for an explanation.
