Similar to this, Wrapping a Feynman diagram in an ellipse or a circle?, I am having some in tikz problem making sure the legs of these diagrams touching the perimeter. I tried the following, but I am not quite able to do it. Will somebody kindly help me draw these kind of diagrams?

particle/.style={decorate, draw=black,
    decoration={aspect=0.08,segment length=3pt,amplitude=3pt}}}\begin{tikzpicture}[node distance=1cm and 1.5cm]
\coordinate (e1);

\coordinate[below left=of e1] (aux6); \coordinate[below right=of aux6] (aux7); \coordinate[below left=of aux7] (aux8);

\coordinate[below=1cm of aux1] (aux);

\draw[particle] (aux7) -- (aux6); \draw[particle] (aux7) -- (aux8); \draw[particle] (aux7) -- (aux); \draw[particle] (aux7) -- (aux8); \draw[particle] (e1) -- (aux1); \draw[particle] (aux1) -- (e2); \draw[particle] (e3) -- (aux2); \draw[particle] (aux2) -- (e4); \draw[particle] (aux1) -- node {} (aux2); \node[draw,name path=circle,line width=3pt,circle,fit=(e1) (e4) (aux7) (aux8),inner sep=.5\pgflinewidth] {}; %\path[name intersections={of=circle and diameter, by={aux3}}];% find the intersection \draw[particle] (aux) -- (aux3); %\draw[particle] (aux2) -- (aux3); %\draw[particle] (aux3) -- (aux1); \end{tikzpicture} \end{center}

I am interested in having these diagrams touching the perimeter

    Please complete your code to a complete document. – Gonzalo Medina Jun 2 '13 at 0:59

    You have a line \coordinate[below=1cm of aux1] (aux); that says "Put node aux 1cm below the node aux1", but you haven't defined the node aux1 already. There are several other instance of this type of error in your code. – John Wickerson Jun 2 '13 at 7:22
  • With an incomplete MWE and errors, this is not going to be answered. Could be either 'unclear' or 'off topic' for those reasons. – Joseph Wright Aug 17 '13 at 18:16
