Example: Polar plot of a sine function with factor in argument

Published 2017-01-01 | Author: Stefan Kottwitz

The sine function is a well known periodic function. Choose an argument factor, which doesn’t divide the period well, and you can see a complicated path around the origin.

This plot was originally made for my blog post on TikZ.de: http://tikz.de/periodisch/

      domain  = -14400:14400,
      samples = 3000,
      hide axis
    \addplot[no markers, mesh, opacity=0.5] {1-sin(40*x/39};
