Standing waves in 2-D via dhiyamuhammad.
Pretty amazing that if you simply add together oscillations = vibrations = waves = harmonics and constrain them within a box, that all these shapes emerge. (See this video for such waves being constructed in real life). By the way, mathematicians sometimes refer to these as “square drumhead” problems because a drumhead is a real-life 2-D surface that vibrates in exactly these kinds of ways to produce the sounds we associate with various drums.
In the link Muhammad points to—Harmonic Resonance Theory—the mathematics of standing waves are applied to the problem of Gestalt in psychology of sense experience.
