NAME ^

Math::PlanePath::FilledRings -- concentric filled lattice rings

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Math::PlanePath::FilledRings;
 my $path = Math::PlanePath::FilledRings->new;
 my ($x, $y) = $path->n_to_xy (123);

DESCRIPTION ^

This path puts points on integer X,Y pixels of filled rings with radius 1 unit each ring.

For example the ring N=22 to N=37 is all the points

    2.5 < hypot(X,Y) < 3.5
    where hypot(X,Y) = sqrt(X^2+Y^2)

N Start

The default is to number points starting N=1 as shown above. An optional n_start can give a different start with the same shape. For example to start at 0,

          26-25-24          n_start => 0
         /        \
       27 13-12-11 23
      /  /        \  \

    30 16  6--7--8 20 36
      \  \        /  /
       31 17-18-19 35
         \        /
        8 32-33-34

The only effect is to push the N values by a constant amount but can help match N on the axes to counts of X,Y points < R or similar.

FUNCTIONS ^

See "FUNCTIONS" in Math::PlanePath for the behaviour common to all path classes.

$path = Math::PlanePath::FilledRings->new ()
$path = Math::PlanePath::FilledRings->new (n_start => $n)

Create and return a new path object.

OEIS ^

Entries in Sloane's Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences related to this path include,

http://oeis.org/A036704 (etc)

    A036705  first diffs of N on X axis,
               being count of X,Y points n-1/2 < norm <= n+1/2
    A036706  1/4 of those diffs

    n_start=1 (the default)
      A036707  N/2+X-1 along X axis,
                 being count norm <= n+1/2 in half plane
      A036708  (N(X,0)-N(X-1,0))/2+1,
                 first diffs of the half plane count

    n_start=0
      A036704  N on X axis, from X=1 onwards
                 count of X,Y points norm <= n+1/2
