The Mike Naylor Trefoil

I had a curve named for me! A big shout out to Will Webber of Bellingham, WA who parameterized one of my favorite shapes to doodle. I used to draw this freehand in my classes, and enjoyed exploring variations with number of loops and number of whorls. None of my sketches ever looked as good as Will's calculated version shown here. Thanks Will!

(Will is a master with parameterizing, you should see him in action as he waves his hands back and forth, gets a feel for the separate x- and y- motions, and then nails the equation. Inspiring!)
