9. It is quite natural that t he opening angle gets wider as a flower gradually blooms. T herefore, B(o:) measures the degree of blooming of a flower. For exam ple, compare the sha pe of flowers in Fig. 485911. 2 (a)a=lO Fig. 9. The opening angle B(a) The flowers for a = 10 and -5 look like a closed bud and a full bloom, respectively. Their in-between images well interpolate an opening flower. Therefore, we hereafter fix the ran~~e of a as -5 ~a~ 10. If we consider a as the time parameter, it is rather counter-intuitive, since a flower reversely blooms as time passes.
