|The Mandelbrot Set (frames from an animation); Quaternionic Fractals (an extension of the complex numbers - Mandelbrot and Julia sets); Hyperspace (4-dimensional structures projected into 3-dimensional space); Molecular Dynamics (images from simulations, particularly the impact of C60 Buckminsterfullerene with crystal surfaces); Self-similar Structures (animations defined by simple recursive rules with varying parameters); Lyapunov Pictures (produced by measuring the stability of a particular dynamical system); Iterated Function Systems (iterating contraction mappings on an initial object to produce self-similar fractal structure); Period Doubling (an interactive JAVA applet); This Very Link (constructing strange self-referential sentences using iteration); Reaction-Diffusion (modelling pattern formation in biological systems by using a nonlinear reaction-diffusion equation). Contributed by Keith Beardmore (now at Los Alamos) and Andy Burbanks.|
