Classic Iterated Function Systems
Library Home || Full Table of Contents || Library Help
|These pages investigate several of the classic iterated functions systems and their associated fractals. Each IFS consists of affine transformations involving rotations, scalings by a constant ratio, and translations. For each example is given * a geometric description of how the fractal is constructed, * the IFS transformations, * the code for generating the fractal via a Lindenmayer system (L-system), * the similarity dimension of the fractal, * special properties and interesting facts about the fractals, and * references.|
