Rose Applet

The rose applet is based on the polar equation r=sin(lp*theta). It was originally built in 1996 using Java 1.0.2.

How to Use This Applet

This applet provides several means to interact and generate roses. You may enter values for the number of loops and the delta by which theta is increased for each loop and press the Draw button. If you do not want to enter specific values, select the Random button. Pressing the Random button will cause random values to be generated for the number of loops and delta. Selecting the Auto button causes a thread to be started, where a new random rose is generated every 3 seconds. Pressing the Stop button will halt the generation of new roses.
