Extractions: Box counting software for the Macintosh and Linux. Ruler or Compass Dimension Recurrence plots I wonder whether fractal images are not touching the very structure of our brains. Is there a clue in the infinitely regressing character of such images that illuminates our perception of art? Could it be that a fractal image is of such extraordinary richness, that it is bound to resonate with our neuronal circuits and stimulate the pleasure I infer we all feel? The real world was full of larger structures, smaller structures, simpler and more complex structures than the tiny portion comprising sentient creatures and their societies, and it required a profound myopia of scale and similarity to believe that everything beyond this shallow layer could be ignored.
3D Fractals A java applet which generates and displays your choice of 3dimensional fractal. Compatible with 3D glasses (optional). Written by Pete Gray. It generates 3-dimensional 'fractals' by superimposing polyhedra upon themselves recursively. http://www.houseof3d.com/pete/applets/wireframe/fractal
Extractions: This is an extension of my wireframe applet. It generates 3-dimensional 'fractals' by superimposing polyhedra upon themselves recursively. You get to pick the polyhedron, the level of recursion, and the spaces between the individual polyhedrons. You can set the fractal spinning by dragging on it with your mouse and releasing. If you have 3D glasses, you can use those, too. Get a damn java enabled browser, would you? gently drag and release to start the model spinning window.onerror = null unit shape : tetrahedron pyramid sextahedron octahedron cube levels : DANGER!!! PLEASE increase levels gradually - see below.) Hint - spinning cubes look way cool with lots of separation. Use CAUTION when selecting how many levels of recursion you want. A recursive tetrahedron with 5 levels contains 1,536 lines, and 6 levels has 6,144 lines. A cube with only 4 levels also has 6,144 lines (if your browser can survive it, either of these looks wild spinning slowly (with tons of space for the cube, optional for the tetrahedron)). But BE CAREFUL!

Extractions: Mathematical ideas will introduce ways of thinking about things and ideas that may be new to you. The methods will NOT work for every type of problem in our lives, but ... in certain situatuions ... mathematical modes of thought prove very effective. The methods include reasoning and imagining. Imagination is used to ask questions, to understand questions, and to conceive of possible answers. Reasoning can then be used to test what we have imagined. (The first few weeks' assignments are given at the bottom of this page.) A list of the topics we will study: 3) general course description (from college catalog): An exploratory course in mathematics for the Liberal Arts student. Topics may include mathematical logic, algebra of sets, Boolean algebra, permutations and combinations, probability, statistics, transfinite and finite numbers, bases other than 10, group theory, history of mathematics, puzzles and paradoxes, the mathematics of finance, or others chosen by the instructor.
Fractal Polyhedra and VRMLArts by V.Bulatov Look at Fractal polyhedra with interactive Java 1.1 applet,if you didn't install a VRML plugin yet. Kepler's (Stellated) fractals. http://www.people.nnov.ru/fractal/VRML/poly/poly.htm
Extractions: Look at Fractal Polyhedra with interactive Java 1.1 applet, if you didn't install a VRML plugin yet. Hop David attracted my attention to Keplerian Fractals . He replaces every horn of a stellated (non-convex) polyhedron by small self-similar polyhedron. The picture shows that we can make it in two different ways (we will obtain a II-type (solid) fractal if we combine I-type ones). Interactive Kepler's Octahedron is made of 4 Tetra Flakes. Hop David found out that it turns into a cube under iterations. He found "Cantor's Octahedron" beneath the cube's surface too. Kepler's Stellated Dodecahedron I-type II-type (solid) Kepler's Great Stellated Dodecahedron I-type II-type (solid) . Polyhedra with many vertises are too complicated :( You will get 1D Fractal Web (may be Laces or Hedgehog :) if you start at "skeleton" of a Polyhedron. The skeleton is made of rays from the Polyhedron center to its verteses. Look at Interactive

Generation Of 3D Fractals For Web Unlike the well known Lsystems fractals, this algorithm does not need a rathercomplicated string parser and 3D turtle for its Fractal Trees and polyhedra. http://www.people.nnov.ru/fractal/VRML/Web3D/Web3D.htm
Extractions: A wide variety of amazing 3D fractals can be obtained by iteration of very simple rules many times. The simple rules lead to very small (1-3kb) algorithms and scripts realized in Java, JavaScript or VRML. The scripts are flexible and can be combined in a library of fractals for application in complex scenes. It is well known, that as since fractals possess self-similarity on scaling, therefore they can be made by iterations of scaling transformations. In Figure 1 it is shown how the famous Koch's snowflake is obtained by repetition of simple transformations: scaling, rotations and translations. Figure 1. Generation of the Kochs snowflake. The initial segment 1 is shrunk three times, then three small copies are translated upward and two of them rotated by +-60 degrees. Then this procedure is applied again to the entire curve 2 to get the next curve 3 and so on. Unlike the well known L-systems fractals, this algorithm does not need a rather complicated string parser and 3D turtle for its realization. It uses "natural" 3D operations: scaling, rotations and translations and it can be used with any "3D engine" (VRML, Java3D or Java1 applets). Unfortunately, there is no such "built in" 3D engine in present-day browsers. It turns out that very realistically looking 3D Trees and other Plants can be obtained just as the Kochs snowflake by repetition of scaling, rotations and translations. Generation of a simple tree is shown below.
