*Epicycloids* and *hypocycloids* are curves that can be defined by circles.
Let a fixed circle (black) be given. A second, movable circle (blue) rolls on the outside (in the case of the epicycloid)
or on the inside (in the case of the hypocycloid) of the fixed circle. By a point at the border of the moving circle
the curve (red) is generated. If the radii of the two circles have an integer ratio, the curve is closed.
