Benoit Mandelbrot died yesterday at 85. He discovered the fractal that bears his name and contributed to mathematics- especially “roughness”. Here’s a TED talk he gave earlier this year: Mandelbrot TED talk
I’ve posted some code to generate Mandelbrot fractals on the Propeller here:
I’ve also explored fern and snowflake fractals with 12Blocks. Â Both programsÂ continually calculates new x,y coordinates according to a simple function. The result is a beautiful fern leaf!
