Description

Fractal Attraction™: A Fractal Design System for the Macintosh® provides information pertinent to fractal attraction, a Macintosh application. This book introduces the Iterated Function Systems (IFS).

Organized into eight chapters, this book begins with an overview of the standard and enhanced versions of fractal attraction. This text then explains the ideas and basic principles behind generating fractals based on sets of equations. Other chapters explain an alternative algorithm, the random algorithm, and how to use it. This book discusses as well the Design window wherein the user can translate, rotate, shear, and re-size transformations all by pointing, clicking and dragging. The final chapter deals with an overview of the windows and the menu items are explained in detail.

This book is a valuable resource for readers who are interested in using fractal attraction application.
