An ANU mathematician has developed a new way to uncover simple patterns that might underlie apparently complex systems, such as clouds, cracks in materials or the movement of the stockmarket.
The method, named fractal Fourier analysis, is based on new branch of mathematics called fractal geometry. Continue reading Fractal Fourier Analysis
This website promotes recent research concerning the mathematics of natural imagery, art, and biology. The goal is to combine ideas from chaotic dynamics, iterated function systems and image science to provide a new geometry of form and colour. Topics include colour stealing, fractal transformations, orbital pictures, the chaos game, superfractals, laminations, textures, area-preserving maps and more. Have fun!
