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 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..
More hyperbolics...Posted on 2010-04-22 14:32
|I wrote an article (only in French, sorry!) about transformations of tilings of the Poincaré disc.
There now is a small new gallery with some images on this subject.|
All this is based on work by Vladimir Bulatov.
The Mandelbulb fractal and more...Posted on 2009-12-05 18:28
|Just as I got interested in the techniques for creating fractals in 3D, there was a community of enthusiasts who collaborated through the internet in the search for a 3D version of the Mandelbrot fractal.|
The result is not quite the holy grail they were looking for, but the object they named the Mandelbulb is quite fascinating.
So here are two new galleries : my collection of general 3D fractals and Mandelbulbs.
As usual, all the images were created in Ultrafractal.
To know more about the Mandelbulb, read this article (in French) or this version (in Italian).
