Math::PlanePath::TriangleSpiralSkewed -- integer points drawn around a skewed equilateral triangle
use Math::PlanePath::TriangleSpiralSkewed; my $path = Math::PlanePath::TriangleSpiralSkewed->new; my ($x, $y) = $path->n_to_xy (123);
This path makes an spiral shaped as an equilateral triangle (each side the same length), but skewed to the left to fit on a square grid,
16 4 |\ 17 15 3 | \ 18 4 14 2 | |\ \ 19 5 3 13 1 | | \ \ 20 6 1--2 12 ... <- Y=0 | | \ \ 21 7--8--9-10-11 30 -1 | \ 22-23-24-25-26-27-28-29 -2 ^ -2 -1 X=0 1 2 3 4 5
The properties are the same as the spread-out TriangleSpiral
. The triangle numbers fall on straight lines as the do in the TriangleSpiral
but the skew means the top corner goes up at an angle to the vertical and the left and right downwards are different angles plotted (but are symmetric by N count).
Option skew => 'right'
directs the skew towards the right, giving
4 16 skew="right" / | 3 17 15 / | 2 18 4 14 / / | | 1 ... 5 3 13 / | | Y=0 -> 6 1--2 12 / | -1 7--8--9-10-11 ^ -2 -1 X=0 1 2
This is a shear "X -> X+Y" of the default skew="left" shown above. The coordinates are related by
Xright = Xleft + Yleft Xleft = Xright - Yright Yright = Yleft Yleft = Yright
2 16-15-14-13-12-11 skew="up" | / 1 17 4--3--2 10 | | / / Y=0 -> 18 5 1 9 | | / -1 ... 6 8 |/ -2 7 ^ -2 -1 X=0 1 2
This is a shear "Y -> X+Y" of the default skew="left" shown above. The coordinates are related by
Xup = Xleft Xleft = Xup Yup = Yleft + Xleft Yleft = Yup - Xup
2 ..-18-17-16 skew="down" | 1 7--6--5--4 15 \ | | Y=0 -> 8 1 3 14 \ \ | | -1 9 2 13 \ | -2 10 12 \ | 11 ^ -2 -1 X=0 1 2
This is a rotate by -90 degrees of the skew="up" above. The coordinates are related
Xdown = Yup Xup = - Ydown Ydown = - Xup Yup = Xdown
Or related to the default skew="left" by
Xdown = Yleft + Xleft Xleft = - Ydown Ydown = - Xleft Yleft = Xdown + Ydown
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 etc. For example to start at 0,
15 n_start => 0 |\ 16 14 | \ 17 3 13 ... | |\ \ \ 18 4 2 12 31 | | \ \ \ 19 5 0--1 11 30 | | \ \ 20 6--7--8--9-10 29 | \ 21-22-23-24-25-26-27-28
With this adjustment for example the X axis N=0,1,11,30,etc is (9X-7)*X/2, the hendecagonal numbers (11-gonals). And South-East N=0,8,25,etc is the hendecagonals of the second kind, (9Y-7)*Y/2 with Y negative.
See "FUNCTIONS" in Math::PlanePath for behaviour common to all path classes.
$path = Math::PlanePath::TriangleSpiralSkewed->new ()
$path = Math::PlanePath::TriangleSpiralSkewed->new (skew => $str, n_start => $n)
Create and return a new skewed triangle spiral object. The skew
parameter can be
"left" (the default) "right" "up" "down"
$n = $path->xy_to_n ($x,$y)
Return the point number for coordinates $x,$y
. $x
and $y
are each rounded to the nearest integer, which has the effect of treating each N in the path as centred in a square of side 1, so the entire plane is covered.
Within each row there's a minimum N and the N values then increase monotonically away from that minimum point. Likewise in each column. This means in a rectangle the maximum N is at one of the four corners of the rectangle.
| x1,y2 M---|----M x2,y2 maximum N at one of | | | the four corners -------O--------- of the rectangle | | | | | | x1,y1 M---|----M x1,y1 |

The square spiral order in A217011,A217012 and their inverses has first step at 90-degrees to the first step of the triangle spiral, hence the rotation by 90 degrees when relating to the SquareSpiral
path. A217010 on the other hand has no such rotation since it reckons the square and triangle spirals starting in the same direction.
