Mar. 6th, 2005 @ 12:30 am cannabola: russian scientists invented a cannabis leaf formula
Tags: ,

this is a backdated entry made specially for those who don't speak russian but have interest in cannabola and the history of its creation. You may find the original entry here, also with the whole story...

6 march 2005, supman & biojane created the first cannabola formula:

R = (1+sin(t)) (1+.9cos(8t)) (1+.1cos(24t))

here's the plot in polar coordinates (built in Maple 7) of this function:

cannabola graph

UPDATE: k001 conducted an independent expertize that makes it clear that the formula is correct

UPDATE: qnick gave function a name "cannabola", also he made it's graph in MS Excel

UPDATE: stasikoffjj modernized a formula with addition of perturbation coefficient which helped the graph look more like the original leaf, here's his variant of cannabola

UPDATE: shfire suggested the folowing variant:

R = (1+sin(t)) (1-.9abs(sin(4t))) (.9+.05cos(200t)),

and a new cannabola graph, i think it's the best

UPDATE: winwolf made graph using macromedia flash technology, here are plots of cannabola: my version, the version of stasikoffjj , & the version of shfire

UPDATE: djon_jene4ka named cannabola the formula of love to graphs, funny

UPDATE: dammazz & friends made a php script that generates a very beatiful cannabola plot!

UPDATE: an anonymous coder created a cannabola java-applet - it is available here with source

UPDATE: a coder Tosol from Kharkov, Ukraine made a program for drawing a plot with variable detalization: cannabis has got you!

UPDATE: it had to happen so it happened - real mathematician made his contribution on cannabola

sir Anton Sukhinov created a cannabola-like fractal. There is nothing from the original function in it but it looks very much like the prototype, anyway you must see it because of it's exceptional beauty!

sorry, I did not mean to steal your code, in ReadMe.txt there is a link back to your site :)

I also added a link to description here:

Java Animation Cannabola is created!

Java Animation of Cannabola is created, some modifications of Ulli make it look like a Canadian maple:

it doesn't work on my machine, didn't get why =(
anyway why make it look like a Canadian maple, which is allready a well known function?

what's the difference?

are you are also the author of the famous maple leaf function? :)

Probably you need to install Java plugin from Sun to play the animation.
Google for "Java plugin" you'll find it.

plots differ

of course i'm not the author of Maple leaf function

Now that we know the formula for the perfect cannabis leaf I wonder if we'll ever have the perfect formula for curing drug addiction. Sin and cos won't help much in that, would it?

i respect you affort of advertizing the idea - that's good, but the bad thing about any addiction is that there's nothing to cure

i mean, addiction is not a desease

you know, just some time ago people tried to cure homosexuals - they still have such programs in catholic church, the same pure nonsence

the person who uses drugs with seeming disability to quit or even make a short stop - this person behaves bad, much like other bad guys unable not to steal, not to drive while being drunk and so on and so on

admit it, there's nothing to cure, so there couldn't possibly be a perfect drug to coru drug addiction

lobotomy works by the way
