COMMENTS

The e.g.f. sqrt(cos(t)^6 + sin(t)^6) gives the distance from the origin to a point on the astroid (a 4-cusped hypocycloid) given by x^(2/3) + y^(2/3) = 1, using the parametric equations x = cos(t)^3 and y = sin(t)^3.

EXAMPLE

E.g.f.: A(x) = 1 - 3*x^2/2! + 21*x^4/4! + 177*x^6/6! + 11721*x^8/8! +...

where A(x)^2 = cos(x)^6 + sin(x)^6, which begins:

A(x)^2 = 1 - 6*x^2/2! + 96*x^4/4! - 1536*x^6/6! + 24576*x^8/8! +...
