spiral_dyn(n,a)
% spiral_dyn.m
% returns x,y position along an archimedean spiral of degree n
% based on cputime, first time it is called is start time
%
% based on: r = a*(theta^n)
%
% usage: [x_cnt,y_cnt] = spiral_dyn(n,a)
% i.e., 
%   n =  2 (Fermat)
%     =  1 (Archimedes)
%     = -1 (Hyberbolic)
%     = -2 (Lituus)
