Schwarz-Christoffel transformation (circular version)

After sitting back and looking at the pictures that I made, they seem remarkably similar to what we expect to observe, in a pool with the given boundary has a small pebble dropped vertically on the centre. This behavior can be "explained" if one assumes that the wavefront is always orthogonal to the direction of propagation (and thus this orthogonality is preserved under the conformal mapping from a disc).

I'm pretty clueless about physics, so I would like to ask: is there some sort of physical principle that justifies this?

Thanks for any enlightenment,

I am amazed that you got these pictures to show up at all. It's as if you had some kind of magical touch that makes the computer want to comply with your commands. I always get error messages, different error messages, but error messages nonetheless.
