Fractals: The Colours of Infinity


Recommended Posts

In memory of Arthur C. Clarke's recent death, I would like to post his excellent program on fractals. He considers them one of the most beautiful and remarkable discoveries in the entire history of mathematics:

This program explores the far-reaching implications that fractals have both in mathematics and in our daily lives, and interviews a number of highly reputed mathematicians about the nature of fractals and the immense applications they could have in our daily lives.

 

It feels a bit dated now, but still... excellent!

I was hoping for a program for fractals.

 

Where you can type an equation and it will show you what the resulting fractal would look like. (Along with pre-programmed fractals to look at like the Mandelbrot set, etc.)
