    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleCommunication


    With an equiangular (logarithmic) spiral as the point of departure, the authors design a mathematical model of a Nautilus shell. They establish a close connection in the model between the characteristic angle in the underlying equiangular spiral and the golden angle.
