Over the past few years I have done a lot of work in developing the science and technology of genetic fractals. At the very basis of it, they look like natural forms such as trees or other natural organisms.
Upon suggestion by one of our blog followers (thanks Ben!), I have enhanced the Genetic Fractal Explorer. There are now a lot of interesting other parameters that you can change.
As part of the search for the answer to the ultimate question that philosophers i.e. ourselves under a starry night, we end up asking the paradoxical question: what happened before the first thing happened? Or in the present day context, what happened before the Big Bang.
Sometimes I pursue an idea that doesn’t immediately lead anywhere. This is one of those. I wondered what the canopies of tree fractals would look like if you plotted them next to one and other whilst varying
The Koch curve, one of Mandelbrot’s “monsters” becomes a little more friendly when plotted using smooth (analytic) tree fractals. For details on this curve, refer to this paper.
This has been in the making for a while and I’ve finally taken, borrowed and stolen the time to treat genetic fractals scientifically. A paper entitled: “Derivative coordinates for analytic tree fractals and fractal engineering”. Abstract below. I’ve submitted this to Arxiv (reference: 1501.01675).
I’d love to put the tree fractal explorer here on the blog but WordPress doesn’t allow that (for excellent reasons). Please visit the explorer here.
