Spanky Fractal Database
Huge archive of fractal-related programs, documents, and images.
Includes a well-annotated, categorized collection of links to
fractal information stored at other sites. Superb.
FractInt Home Page at Spanky
FractInt is a freeware fractal generator. It's fast, extensive,
versatile, and free. In short, FractInt is the fractal program
to get. You can
DOS, Windows, XWindows, and Motif versions of FractInt (sorry Mac users),
including the source code. Also consider buying
Fractal Creations, 2nd ed. by Tim Wegner and Bert Tyler, two of the
programmers of FractInt. Fractal Creations is a user's manual for
FractInt that comes with a copy of FractInt v. 18.21 and a CD-ROM of
over 1800 fractal images.
Latest version of the Frequently Asked Questions file
for the sci.fractals newsgroup and frac-l listserv.
Usenet newsgroup devoted to objects of non-integral dimension
Fractals and Scale
Introduction to scale, dimension, and random iteration algorithms
as they relate to fractals.
Exploring Chaos and Fractals
Online condensed version of Exploring Chaos and Fractals, an
electronic textbook designed to be used by individuals or groups in
secondary or tertiary settings. Very readable introduction to
fractals with some nice images.
Short introduction to fractals from the National Center for
Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois.
- IBM Compatible (DOS and Windows)
DOS program to produce mathematically accurate
three-color images of the Mandelbrot set and its associated
Julia sets. Allows the user to zoom, read the true coordinates of
a point, and compute the period corresponding to a point.
Requires an i486 DX CPU or better.
The Well Tempered Fractal
Creates fractal-based musical melodies.
Displays the orbits of points in and near the Mandelbrot set.
Fractal landscape generator with 3D viewing.
Iterated functions system (IFS) fractal program with C source.
Fractal Science Kit
An interactive programming environment with windows for viewing the fractal image, modifying the properties that define the fractal, examining the data behind the fractal, and viewing/editing the programs, macros (inline functions/methods), and color gradients used by the Fractal Science Kit to produce the final image
