Session: Non-linear waves
We report that a class of integrable discrete holomorphic functions can generate planar truss structures with a certain mechanical optimality called the Michell structure, well-known in the area of architecture. Further, the discrete planar curves formed by the edges are nothing but the discrete analogue of the logarithmic spiral which is a special case of the discrete log-aesthetic curves. Discrete log-aesthetic curves are integrable discrete analogue of the log-aesthetic curves, which is known as a class of planar curves with built-in aesthetic nature, and those curves are invariant curves with respect to integrable deformation of planar curves in similarity geometry.
