All of the posts and maths below have been superseded by a paper that presents all the research to date: Derivative coordinates for analytic tree fractals and fractal engineering
The posts are perhaps more user friendly but less formal and less accurate. I have taken care in the paper to correct errors in the formulations and introduce consistent terminology and notation.

Going beyond the 3rd dimension: hyper dimensional fractals using the genetic equation.
An analysis of the genetic equation for arbitrary function: the genetic transform.
A grand overview of a closed and analytic form of genetic fractals: Genetic fractal formulation of a “Genetic Equation”.
When I started analyzing genetic fractals, I was focusing on L-system fractals, I came up with an interesting approach to create smooth fractal branches, i.e. analytic from a math’s perspective.
from the usual angular L-system fractals | to | smooth and analytic fractals |
This led to a an analysis I reported here in a few chapters:
1. Introduction
Also PDF-ed together here.
As you foresaw, I couldn’t keep myself from popping by. I read your paper (what you’ve written by now) and found it pretty easy to follow so far. Sometimes I struggled with the notation (in some stages I wasn’t clear on whether you were using vectors or some other way to express paths, for example) but I finally understood what you were doing. I’ll look forward to seeing the rest! My impression with this part was that you were just setting the background for the actual stuff…

Thanks David, Great feedback. The formulations are discrete initiale, thema’s bevond continuous and are slapping into complex functions. I will try and make that explicit.
You are right, I had to put the foundations in place. As far as I can tell, this reference path approach is new and I needed to build it from scratch.
I am finalizing the chapter on continuous fractals which leads to fractal spaces. All of this is new, I believe. The genetic formulation is eAsy from there on and will lead to node transfer functions.
It takes a lot of time to write this stuff as I need to find the right formulations first, verify that these are correct and then tie them into the mathematical story. But – I’m having fun 😉
