For r < 2^16, seems to need extra bytes for fractional parts and uses too many steps. For r > 2^16 (ok, ok...) accuracy degrades (in terms of absolute pixel distance). But slick, yes, in the...

It is a different path: gravitational pull causes one of the ellipse's foci to be at the center of mass. Linear pull causes the ellipse's center to be at the center of mass. In the linear case, the...

I only met examples of the latter, but in places where one would put an abstract, so I guessed the meaning to be a figurative "top left [to] down right". :grin: P.S.: Yes, "top" and "down" are not...

Nice one, except that there is still one (potentially shorter) division by a when calculating p. You should add r >= 0 as a condition.
