Our Logo – The Astroid

The astroid is a special form of a mathematical equation called a “hypocycloid.”  
A hypocycloid is a curve produced by fixed point on the circumference of a small
circle of radius “b” rolling around the inside of a large circle of radius “a”.  









An n-cusped hypocycloid has a/b = n.  If a/b = 4, the resulting curve contains 4
cusps and is referred to as an “asteroid”.
