Abstract. We introduce a quasiregular analog F of the sine and cosine function such that, for a sufficiently large constant \lambda, the map x \mapsto \lambda F(x) is locally expanding. We show that the dynamics of this map define a representation of Rd, d \geq 2, as a union of simple curves \gamma : [0,\infty) \to Rd which tend to \infty and whose interiors \gamma* = \gamma((0,\infty)) are disjoint such that the union of all \gamma* has Hausdorff dimension 1.
