Several planar curves that are well known from mechanics, astronomy, acoustics, etc., and used in other branches of optics, such as caustics and light robotics, are employed for modeling of the recently introduced coherence curves [Opt. Lett. 43, 4727 (2018)]. These planar curves have intrinsic relationships between their magnitudes and phases and, hence, lead to coherence states that have not been previously encountered.
