3.59. wave ball


The wave sphere [ 9 ] is represented by the following equations.


x = u cos(cos(u)) cos(v)



y = u cos(cos(u)) sin(v)



z = u sin(cos(u))


To represent the area, the two parameters u and v can assume the following values ​​(domain of definition), for example.


u is an element from the set of numbers [0, 14.5]


v is an element of the number set [0, 2 pi]


The domain of definition can be changed in the plugin.
