This log is a bit out of order but I cleaned up my desk last week and want to get these papers off it lest I get back into the same mess I started in.
These are my notes on how to write an algorithm for a zigzag within X space given N...N+7 peaks on the zigzags. Issues I encountered on conceptualizing this:
- Tried to use angles at first, that was a complicated mess
- I'm starting on the half-wavelength so tried to shift everything and account later
- Final answer is that it's the number of segments of all combined crest and trough points that is all you need to calculate
Also, the sets of numbers on the right half of the leftmost sheets is the literal points and the delta of those points for the spiral algorithm.
