Spatial Inversion: Reflective Anamorphograms
Circle Inversion Circle inversion entails taking a point in the plane and specifying it as the center of a circle C of radius a. A point is transformed to the point such that [1]
It is relatively simple to prove a range of theorems involving this transformation. 1. A circle that is completely outside C is transformed to a circle wholly inside C, but not passing through the (the center of inversion), and vice versa. 2. A circle that intersects C and passes through is transformed to a straight line that passes through the points of intersection of the two circles, and vice versa. 3. The inverse of a line that does not pass through is a circle inside C that passes through O, and so forth [1].
