Ulam Spiral Images

Ulam wrote the positive integers in a rectilinear spiral pattern and observed that primes showed up on diagonals rather more than they might have been expected to. Here are images illustrating the same kind of thing with other sequences of positive integers. Since there seems to be no convention on this sort of thing, my spirals start with 1, and then move upward to 2, then clockwise, like this.

twin primes (the lower twin)
triangular numbers
pentagonal numbers
abundant numbers
abundant numbers (low res)
tau(n) divides n
tau(n) equals tau(n+1)
tau(n) equals tau(n+2)
tau(n), greyscale
happy numbers

Modulo classes

modulo 11 (low res)
modulo 13 (low res)
modulo 29
