  How to get Moire from your computer.
The equations in lines 44 and 46 are the generating functions, solved to determine the distance from the center; that distance is then compared against the list of bounding radii in the data statement, while a count is kept to determine the light/dark decision.
The lines were close enough together that the ]['s associated with near intersections seemed to clutter up the picture, so I modified the print routine for the version shown in the fourth to eliminate them, and the result shows the moire lines much more clearly.
In the third pattern (shown on page 174), radial straight lines of alternating color, the hoped for illusion was not striking, but the detail near the center of the pattern was very rewarding anyway.

 The UnMuseum - The Lines of Nazca
In and around the lines there are also trapezoidal zones, strange symbols, and pictures of birds and beasts all etched on a giant scale that can only be appreciated from the sky.
The Nasca lines were created by clearing the darkened pampa stones to either side and exposing the lighter sand underneath.
Two wooden stakes placed as a straight line would be used to guide the placement of a third stake along the line.

 Equations of Straight Lines
When working with straight lines, there are many ways to arrive at an equation which represents the line.
Lines that are horizontal have a slope of zero.
Given that the slope of a line is -3 and the line passes through the point (-2,4), write the equation of the line.

 VirtualPeru.net: The Nazca Lines
The Nazca Lines area series of drawings of animals, geometric figures and birds ranging up to300 metres (1000 feet) in size, etched into the arid crust of the pampa and preserved for about 2000 years thanks to a complete lack of rain and specialwinds that cleaned - but not erased - the desert.
He first thought the lines were part of a pre-Inca irrigation system, but he quickly concluded it had nothing to do with irrigation.
Although it must have been very difficult to draw such lines on the ground, lines that can only be seen from the sky, many "scientists" think it has something to do with alien navigation systems, made by creatures from other planets.

 Geometric Primitives in Web Design. Straight Lines - webreference.com
straight line is the most basic geometric shape, although it's rarely the first thing that comes to an average designer's mind.
They undoubtedly originate from the lines on flowcharts and callouts; that's why they prefer horizontal and vertical directions, sometimes are dotted, and sometimes have arrowheads, notches, or bullets at their ends.
Besides the functions of connectors and dividers, horizontal lines are sometimes used as close underlines for text headings.

 Nazca Lines (Morgana's Observatory)
Occasional travelers through Nazca had doubtless noticed the strange and obviously artificial lines in the desert floor, but the lines were unimpressive and meaningless at ground level.
The so-called Nazca lines, of which there are thousands, consist, according to investigator William H. Isbell, of five kinds of markings: long straight lines; large geometric figures; drawings of plants and animals; rock piles; and figures decorating hillsides.
The lines may be as narrow as six inches or as wide as several hundred yards.

If on reproduction of artwork we draw lines which repeat all straight lines of picture and pick up them into one point, then we will notice that many of directions are the same.
If we pick up lines of artworks of an artist or a few artists who work after one canon into one point, we shall see that lines’ directions repeat themselves from one picture to another and their quantity is not large.

A shield parted per saltire (divided into four parts by two crossed diagonal lines) and per cross is called a gyronny of eight, and each segment is called a gyron.
When the shield is completely divided into a number of equal parts by a pale, bend, bar, or chevron (see below), it is said to be paly, bendy, barry, or chevrony, and the number of divisions is specified, as, for example, a paly of six or and sable.
A field divided by vertical and horizontal lines is called checky, and one divided by intersecting diagonal lines is called lozengy or fusilly (see below).

 Citations: Extracting Straight Lines - Burns, Hanson, Riseman (ResearchIndex)
The distinction between the terms line segments and lines will be made on the basis that a line is obtained by grouping these fragmented line segments.
If the line is lighter than the background, the derivative of the intensity will be positive at the left side of the bar and negative at the right side.
Then, these lines were removed from the elevation map, and the plane finder was run with the same parameters as used in Fig.

 Straight Lines
An important concept for a straight line in the (x, y)-plane is its slope.
The slope, or gradient, of a straight line is the tan of the angle that the line makes with the positive direction of the x-axis
The cartesian equation of a straight line having slope m is of the form

 Lines and Slopes
The reason we are interested in straight lines is that they are so simple; we need to know only two pieces of information to describe a line completely.
The line y=1 has zero slope (there is no change in y as x changes), and thus no increase or decrease is occurring.
In the next demonstration, you can see that, for a line, the ratio of the change in y to the change in x is always the same no matter which two points are chosen.

 Chapter 1 Section 7
This procedure is enormously useful, as it very often happens that the experimental result you are looking for appears as a parameter of a curve you determine graphically, such as the slope or intercept of a straight line.
The best-fit recipe assumes all the data are equally uncertain, and thus draws a line with a slightly smaller slope.
The "best fit straight line" is a very standard procedure in data analysis, and it's available in all sorts of places.

 Hamilton - Math To Build On: Crossing & Parallel Lines
Parallel lines are lines in the same plane that never meet no matter how far they run.
These lines are parallel to each other because they are on the same plane (the surface of this piece of paper) and they are the same distances apart.
Note: This is not to say that you cannot draw lines that are not in the same plane and not parallel, but the lines we draw in our work usually are.

 Straight Lines
Isn't that what songwriting is? I find that when people communicate in a straight line, it has greater emotional impact on the listener.
By straight lines of communication, of course, I don't mean obvious lines, clichés or obvious ways of saying things.
I mean that when you have something to communicate, musically and/or lyrically, and you put it there in the listener's ear with the precision and power of a laser beam, it will have more impact than if you pitched it out there somewhere in the vicinity of your listener.

 Fitting Straight Lines to Data by Least Squares   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
We will consider two different straight lines for describing how Y depends on X, and explore the notion that one of the lines fits the data better than the other line.
Be aware, however, that it is almost always a bad idea to fit a straight line to such a small amount of data.
Actual data almost never lie exactly on a straight line, but we sometimes want to approximate them with a straight line that fits as well as possible.

A part of line a between points A and B including these points is called a line segment AB or simply segment AB.
A part of line a that consists of an endpoint A and all points that are located on the same side of a with respect to A, is called a ray.
If a point D belongs to two lines a and b at the same time then we say that D is a point of intersection of a and b or that two lines a and b intersect at point D.
