The squeeze mapping has been illustrated in the Modenov & Parkhomenko book listed in the references. This diagram was also printed in Varieties of Realism, appendix A, page 290, by M. A. Hagen (1986). The caption there is "perpendicular axes of compression" which isn't helpful. The squeeze mapping can convert ellipse to circle to ellipse, and the oval-circle-oval idea of the above print illustrations would improve Wikipedia.Rgdboer (talk) 01:23, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
- Apologies for the very long delay - would this be fine?
- The rectangles are included since it's easier to see the construction of the hyperbolic sector, and it's clearer that the area is preserved. Maschen (talk) 19:24, 1 December 2012 (UTC)
Thank you Maschen for an excellent illustration worthy of meditation. It has been placed in the Literature section. The principles shown by your work makes the efforts of the cited authors meld into the essential nature of the squeeze mapping.Rgdboer (talk) 00:04, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
