This image shows the path of the Riemann zeta function along the critical line. That is, it is a graph of versus for real values of t running from 0 to 34. The first five zeros in the critical strip are clearly visible as the place where the spirals pass through the origin.

The plotcurve is accurate to 6 digits.
