Lines in the Poincaré Disk Model of Hyperbolic Geometry

I was inspired by a friend’s alchemical hypergeometric function notation to see how similar drawings looked on the hyperbolic Poincaré disk. Drawing lines on the Poincaré disk is actually easier using compass and paper than using a computer: on a computer, you have to actually calculate the radius, center, and points of intersection of the circular arc. See all the steps in the Jupyter notebook on Github.
