Newton type fractals in 3DPosted on 2011-01-17 18:17
|Newton's method for finding the roots of an equation creates fractals if the variable in the equation is a complex number. I found a way to show these fractals in 3D. See this new gallery.
Another tribute to Benoît MandelbrotPosted on 2010-11-09 12:55
|I further improved my algorithm for 3d views of Mandelbrot and Julia sets. See this gallery.
A tribute to Benoît Mandelbrot.Posted on 2010-10-24 16:52
|Benoît Mandelbrot passed away on October 14, 2010.|
He will be remembered in the first place for his contributions to science, but he also gave us the magnificent beauty of the Mandelbrot set. As a tribute, I have compiled a collection of images of the set in a 3D form. See this gallery.
Kaleidoscopic 3D IFS fractalsPosted on 2010-09-07 23:52
|As a follow-up to the article, ("A fractal soccer ball"), about "kaleidoscopic 3D Iterated Function System fractals", I have now opened a new gallery with 32 images.|
A fractal soccer ballPosted on 2010-06-21 12:45
|A new article, "A fractal soccer ball", about "kaleidoscopic 3D IFS fractals", was published on the site of the CNRS.|
Dimensions wins the Prix d'Alembert.Posted on 2010-06-21 12:30
|The film "Dimensions", that I made together with Etienne Ghys and Aurélien Alvarez, won the "Prix d'Alembert a bi-annual price given by the French Mathematical Society to the best projects in math vulgarization. |
The MandelboxPosted on 2010-05-28 11:53
|I wrote another article (again only in French, sorry!) about this special kind of 3D fractal.|
There now is a small new gallery with some images on this subject..
