# Draw/plot a heart graph

Your challenge is to draw/plot one of the hearts below. The size must be at least 50x50 pixels (vector graphics is OK). You may choose which of the hearts you want to draw/plot. Axes, grid lines etc. are accepted. There must be at least 100 distinct coordinates/points on the graph. The heart can be filled with color if you want to.

The equations are either:

or

$y={cos(t)}^{0.5}\cdot|t|^{0.3}$

t is in the range [-1, 1].

or

or

$r=\frac{sin(t)\sqrt{|cos(t)|}}{sin(t)+\frac{7}{5}}-2sin(t)+2$

This is so the shortest code (in each language) in bytes wins. Please provide the output (or link to an online interpreter).

GOTO 1


This took a while, and my battery is low so I didn't want to keep going.

I tried to use the second equation, but couldn't get it to work it actually turned out to be longer, so I just adapted the other answer I had.

EDIT: I just noticed the 50x50 pixel requirement, unfortunately the screen is only 47 pixels high so this isn't possible.

• creative indeed! – dalearn Feb 13 '17 at 17:13
• It's been a while, but can you replace IF (X²+ANS²-1)³-X²ANS³<0 with IF (X²+ANS²-1)³<X²ANS³? – wchargin Feb 15 '17 at 3:58
• Oh, I can't believe I didn't think of that! thanks – 12Me21 Feb 15 '17 at 13:04

$y=1-$_/25,say+map$y**3*($_*=$_/1e3)-($_+$y**2-1)**3>0?$|--?v60:3:$",-40..40for-6..50  Run with perl -E. Plots a filled ASCII heart, using the first equation. Note that the x-axis is stretched by a factor of ~1.265: this is to counteract the fact that terminal fonts are usually much bigger vertically than horizontally.

This is simply the first equation, slightly rearranged to make it shorter. $y directly represents the y in the formula.$_ is initially proportional to x, but is multiply-assigned with itself ($_*=$_/1e3), making it proportional to x². Since x² is used twice in the formula, this saves a few bytes.

1e3 means 1000, and was picked because it’s short and the result looks good. ** is Perl’s power operator. I use >0 rather than ==0 because I want a filled heart.

flip_flop := $|--?v60:3  v60 is an abuse of the archaic version-string syntax to denote the character with ASCII code 60: '<'.$| is a magical variable that can only ever be 0 or 1. Decrementing when it’s already 0 sets it to 1. Decrementing when it’s 1 naturally sets it to 0. Thus, $|-- is often used as a flip-flop: each time it’s evaluated, it alternates between true and false. As a whole, this expression returns alternatively '<' and 3. inner_loop := <condition> ? <flip_flop> :$"


Nested ternaries. If condition is false (→ we’re outside the heart), evaluates to $", which is a magical variable that defaults to " " (a single space). If condition is true (→ we’re inside the heart), it evaluates flip_flop. outer_loop := say+map <inner_loop> ,-40..40  Evaluates inner_loop repeatedly, with$_ (Perl’s “default” variable) going from -40 to 40, in increments of 1. It collects the results of those evaluation in a temporary list, then prints them all, concatenated, ending with a new line.

$y=1-$_/25, <outer_loop> for-6..50


This runs outer_loop repeatedly, with $y going from 1.24 (1 - (-6 / 25)) to -1 (1 - 50 / 25), in decrements of 0.04. Note that y is divided by 25, while x² is divided by 1000, which is the same as dividing x by sqrt(1000). The ~1.265 factor I mentioned is sqrt(1000) / 25. • Huh, I guess it doesn't violate any rules...

Draws a filled heart using the first equation, which we rearrange and take the cube root of (there are 3 cube roots of a real number, one real and 2 complex but we only interested in the real root here.) We then rearrange again to get a quadratic in y x^2+y^2-1=(x^0.66)y y^2-(x^0.66)y+x^2-1=0  Using the standard quadratic formula for expressions of the type ay^2+by+c=0, and taking advantage of the fact that a=1 we get y = -b/2 +/- sqrt((b/2)^2-c) y = -b/2 +/- sqrt((b/2)^2-x^2+1)  where -b/2 = (x^0.66)/2 (represented by b in the program.) We simply scan through the values of x from left to right, drawing a vertical line between each pair of valid values for y to build up a solid shape.

void setup() {

void draw() {
point(59+99*sin(t)*cos(t)*log(t),350-400*sqrt(cos(t))*pow(t,0.3));

golfed:

t=0;void setup(){size(99,300);}void draw(){point(59+99*sin(t)*cos(t)*log(t),350-400*sqrt(cos(t))*pow(t,0.3));t+=0.01;}


this one is quite cheaty as it plots #2 from 0 to infinity instead of from -1 to 1 as shown in the picture to save on the two abs(t). But it's technically correct as there are more than 100 points.

130 bytes "correctier" one

t=-1;void setup(){size(99,300);}void draw(){point(59+99*sin(t)*cos(t)*log(abs(t)),350-400*sqrt(cos(t))*pow(abs(t),0.3));t+=0.01;}


try it online

note : there's probably a way to get 100 points on the default 100x100 canvas and shave the setup off.

• None of your snippets do anything for me on my local version of Processing (except for the second one which just draws 1 point) – Kritixi Lithos Feb 13 '17 at 15:34
• have you tried on sketchpad? ("try it online") you need to click "render sketch" – satibel Feb 13 '17 at 15:35
• But I think that would be called "Processing.JS" instead. For the snippet to work for me, you have to use float instead of int – Kritixi Lithos Feb 13 '17 at 15:37
• oops, forgot the .js, and thanks to that I saved 4 bytes by removing the useless int. – satibel Feb 13 '17 at 15:41

# TI-84 Basic, 40 38 bytes

Similar to @12Me21's answer & output, but for the TI-83/84 series instead.

While 1:2rand-1→A:2rand-1:If (A²+Ans²-1)³>A²Ans³:Pt-On(A,Ans:End

• Is using Ans actually smaller here? I thought Ans was 2 bytes. – 12Me21 Feb 13 '17 at 16:48
• @12Me21 No, it's the same size, and faster too. (For TI-83/84 at least, I don't know about TI-80). – Timtech Feb 13 '17 at 16:52

# BBC BASIC (BBC Micro) (126 bytes)

This is a variation of Level River Street's answer, but for the original BBC Micro's iteration of BBC BASIC.

You can copy and paste either of the following into JSBeeb's new paste functionality at https://bbc.godbolt.org/ (A JavaScript powered BBC Micro emulator), once it has pasted, press Enter inside the 'screen' to show a new prompt, then type RUN, then press Enter to run either version.

Line 7 requires a check for X, to prevent a "Log range" error when X becomes 0 half way through the loop. Other than this, it's pretty much the same. It's a lot slower to draw on a real machine, which JSBeeb emulates pretty well.
