    I ♥ Logarithmic Spirals Poster

    LOGARITHMIC SPIRAL The logarithmic spiral is a polar curve whose equation is given by r = aebθ , where and are constants.

    The nautilus shell is the best-known example of the logarithmic spiral found in nature, but flying animals will approach targets by using a logarithmic spiral pattern. Raptors will hawk prey, swifts will attack insects, and insects will approach a light source via a logarithmic spiral. Beaches can form in the shape of a logarithmic spiral, and the arms of tropical storms can also model this shape. The logarithmic spiral has close connections to the golden ratio.
