WTF is this?

The images you see on this blog are output from various Ulam spiral generators I built in Flash, Python and most recently using Arduino. Generally, each dot in an image represents a number with integer 1 at center. In addition to writing algorithms to test each number for primality within a set I have discovered that an infinite number of calculations can be performed to create new designs and animation algorithms. The simplicity and speed of these algorithms make them an ideal fit for embedded systems graphics, scientific, mathematical and artistic explorations.

Alien Signals

if(Math.round(Math.sqrt(Math.pow(n,2))*(1.6180339887*3.14159265)/2)%5==0){//paint a dot}. I'm not sure what the significance is of multiplying PI with the Golden Mean. But it sure looks cool.

A little more number crunching: if(Math.round(Math.sqrt(Math.pow(pInt, (Math.sqrt(2)+1) ))*(1.6180339887*3.14159265)/2)%2==0){//paint weird pattern}

Tighten up the resolution and you approach a nice pattern for a wool rug.

Note that the picture gets clearer the farther from center you go. It seems there is simply more mathematical "space" for the pattern to be expressed.
