Everything You'll Need to Create Thousands of Fractals! Fractals are the name given to certain types of iterated equations that produce very strange results and are capable of creating unusual and beautiful patterns. Creating Fractals describes the characteristics and mathematical background of fractals and shows the reader how the accompanying fractal-generating program is used to produce thousands of different kinds of fractals, to enlarge them, to color them, and to save them-without any knowledge of computers or programming. The program works with any computer using Windows. In addition to producing artistic effects, the reader can gain an understanding of how each type of fractal is created and how it might be used to treat natural phenomena, e.g., the turbulence of liquids, the behavior of the stock market, and the compression of graphic images. Mathematical terminology is explained in elementary terms.


  • Includes a fractal-generating program on the CD-ROM that is capable of producing and modifying thousands of fractals
  • Describes the mathematics (in elementary terms) involved in creating different types of fractals
  • The CD-ROM has over 100 example fractal images and includes all of their source code, permitting modification of the program to add new fractals, or change the program to meet specialized requirements
