Trigonometric Spirals, Circles, mathematics, geometry
Geometry and Topology | Mathematics
Trigonometric functions are defined by the unit circle; these functions inherit their periodic nature, identities, and other relationships based on the position on the circle for any angle. This project will define new trigonometric functions (primarily sine and cosine) defined by a spiral and research their properties and relationships.
