Conformal Mapping from the Square to the Disk

This post consists mainly of pictures relating to elliptic functions and the conformal map from a square to disk. Useful background can be found in Chamberlain Fung’s Analytical Methods for Squaring the Disc, which inspired the work here. See also the Wikipedia article Jacobi Elliptic Functions.

WebGL in the real world – a short case study – Part 1
