Why the pattern looks that way, or why it seems like it should be in the

I would have to spend more time experimenting with the equations to explain why
the pattern is formed the way it is, but I felt it would be a useful pattern for
filling in grids - square grids, hexagonal grids, etc.

Likely if the pattern were modified and animated, one could perhaps get some
interesting visual effects.

It would be great to find a pre-existing library of such composite functions,
and then we could see if any more closely fit your needs for the tree-ring
