  Xah: Special Plane Curves: Archimedean Spiral
Hyperbolic spiral is also called reciprocal spiral, because it is the inverse curve of Archemedes' spiral, with inversion center at the center.
The inverse curve of Archimedes' spiral with inversion circle of radius 1 at pole is the reciprocal spiral.

 Archimedean spiral - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This Archimedean spiral is distinguished from the logarithmic spiral by the fact that successive turnings of the spiral have a constant separation distance (equal to 2πb if θ is measured in radians), while in a logarithmic spiral these distances form a geometric progression.
Virtually all static spirals appearing in nature are logarithmic spirals, not Archimedean ones.
Many dynamic spirals (such as the Parker spiral of the solar wind, or the pattern made by a St.

In mathematics, a spiral is a curve which turns around some central point or axis, getting progressively closer to or farther from it, depending on which way you follow the curve.
A two-dimensional spiral may be described using polar coordinates by saying that r is a continuous monotonic function of θ.

This spiral is a generalization of Archimedes' spiral (a=1), named to the Greek Archimedes (225 BC).
The inverse of the spiral with a constant a is an Archimedean spiral with a constant -a.
An Archimedean spiral with parameter a has as polar inverse an Archimedean spiral with parameter -a: so the lituus and Fermat's spiral are inversely related, and also the hyperbolic and the Archimedes' spiral.

Hyperbolic tilings are used in many of Escher's works to create the effect of a figure getting smaller and smaller while preserving angles.
Hyperbolic tilings appealed to Escher because he liked the idea of similar (not congruent in Euclidean geometry) figures.
The lines are not hyperbolic, but they do bear a striking resemblence to lines in the Poincar\'{e} model.

As the cluster spirals in, successive outer shells of the mass distribution are peeled off by the tidal field.
After the cluster core begins to disintegrate, it continues to spiral inwards until torques from the polarization cloud and the material lost previously become ineffective, that is, until the debris has spread in angle by $\Delta\phi\sim\pi$.
Independent of the rate of cluster accretion, the recent arrival in the GC of a cluster with a large number of massive stars would have profoundly changed the physical conditions in the central parsec and may in fact be responsible for the present lack of activity of Sgr A$^\ast$.

 Article - Viktor Schauberger - Water Ways of Life
Nature frequently uses the hyperbolic spiral which is externally centripetal and internally moves towards the centre, such spirally movements are found in the spiral nebula of galaxies in space, in the natural flow of water, blood and sap.
He concluded that the water passing through the trouts' gills created a hyperbolic centripetal spiral movement, this combined with the trace elements within the gills, and changed the passing water into 'juvenile' water which by its new characteristic reacted with the surrounding stream water creating a secondary system of water circulation around the trouts' bodies.
Viktor also observed that like the trout, birds move through air using hyperbolic, centripetal spiral movements, when air flows through their feathers during flight, a strong counter circulation of updraft is created carrying the birds forward and upwards.
