I think this particular render (2D mandelbrot zoom) will finish in about a months time. It has already been rendering 24/7 for a month. I just wanted to also let you all know that more fractal material is on the way, I know this blog has been quiet for a while but things are going... Read More »

Take a look at the two small monotone Mandelbrot fractal sets below. They are identical – apart from the fact that the set on the left is aliased and the set on the right is anti-aliased. When fractal images are aliased – they look scratchy and you can see a lot of noise over the... Read More »

On Saturday the academic world mourns the end of the life one of one of the most brilliant mathematicians known. Benoit B. Mandelbrot, the inventor of “fratal geometry” died of pancreatic cancer in Cambridge on Thursday, his family said. He was 85. An insightful teacher, Mr. Mandlebrot brought The Mandlebrot Set to the public so... Read More »

In 1903, French mathematician Henri Poincare introduced the notions of chaos theory while studying the famous three-body problem. The three body problem required a prediction of the movement of a simplified solar system consisting of the sun, moon and earth governed by the Newtonian laws of motion. Poincare found out that even a system as... Read More »

So what is a “fractal”? And what do fractals tell us about the nature of truth? Begin by knowing that a fractal is one of the two kinds of geometry present in our world. And yes, no matter what people say, in our world, there are only two major categories of geometry. Fractal. And other... Read More »

After taking inspiration from miqel.com I thought I would spread the word about the different names for the different parts of the Mandelbrot set. The image below shows what different areas of the Mandelbrot set are called by many fractalists. You can click on the image to take a closer look. [singlepic id=11 w=320 h=240 float=center] miqel.com is an amazing... Read More »

The Mandelbrot set is one of the most famous of all fractals. It is named after the man who discovered it. Benoit Mandelbrot. I wish he was my granddad! He is one of the people who pioneered the exploration of fractals and other chaotic systems.The Mandelbrot set is a  fractal. What this means is that... Read More »
