Rushan Ziatdinov, Norimasa Yoshida, Taewan Kim, 2012. Analytic parametric equations of logaesthetic curves in terms of incomplete gamma functions, Computer Aided Geometric Design 29(2), 129140.
Logaesthetic curves (LACs) have recently been developed to meet the requirements of industrial design for visually pleasing shapes. LACs are defined in terms of definite integrals, and adaptive Gaussian quadrature can be used to obtain curve segments. To date, these integrals have only been evaluated analytically for restricted values (0, 1, 2) of the shape parameter. We present parametric equations expressed in terms of incomplete gamma functions, which allow us to find an exact analytic representation of a curve segment for any real value of alpha. The computation time for generating a LAC segment using the incomplete gamma functions is up to 13 times faster than using direct numerical integration. Our equations are generalizations of the wellknown Cornu, Nielsen, and logarithmic spirals, and involutes of a circle.
