I want to share some colorful images featuring the seven colors in the MATLAB axes color order.
The Sherman-Williams Visualizer provides names for these colors.
Blue Chip Obstinate Orange Gusto Gold Fabulous Grape Overt Green Fountain Real Red
MATLAB cycles through the colors for line plots and other graphics objects.
close set(gcf,'pos',[200 200 480 360]) x = 7*(0:.01:1); y = (-1:1/3:1)'; plot(x,x.*sin(x-y),'linewidth',2)
Benjamin Franklin was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. Among his many achievements is the creation of two semimagic squares. They are only semimagic because the diagonals don't have the magic sum. For the matrices, see franklin.
Describing his work in 1771, Franklin wrote, "I was at length tired with sitting there to hear debates, in which, as clerk, I could take no part, and which were often so unentertaining that I was induc'd to amuse myself with making magic squares or circles".
Ignoring their numeric properties, Ned Gulley viewed the Franklin squares with the area function and our seven colors.
close area(franklin(8)) axis tight square off
area(franklin(16)) axis tight square off
Here is a revision of last year's greeting, replacing the primary colors.
