Newton type fractals in 3DPosted on 20110117 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 20101109 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 20101024 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 20100907 23:52  
As a followup 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 20100621 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 20100621 12:30  
The film "Dimensions", that I made together with Etienne Ghys and Aurélien Alvarez, won the "Prix d'Alembert a biannual price given by the French Mathematical Society to the best projects in math vulgarization.  
The MandelboxPosted on 20100528 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 20100422 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.
