These curves are the geodesics of the flat tori and it is proven in [13] that they are twisted curves if and only if the constants [m.sub.i] [not equal to] [m.sub.j] for all i [not equal to] j.
For each image, the computer generates sequences of overlapping spheres to trace out the twisted curves defined by the given mathematical formula.
