If you’ve heard of fractals before, you’ve probably seen Sierpinski triangles and fractals that look like ferns or leaves.  This animation shows how these two pictures and various other fractals are linked.  The pictures are generated using Iterated Function Systems, which take a starting point then repeatedly either rotate it about a point, or move it closer to another point.  By changing the angle of the rotation, you get all these different pictures.  In general this method can get you all kinds of cool fractals.  [more] [code]

I post original stuff about maths, space, computational linguistics and other things that I like. This blog is meant to be accessible and interesting to people of all backgrounds. My undergrad was maths in Cambridge, and I'm now starting research in Speech and Language technology. Email me at If you're new, check out this overview of my posts. All code posted is in Mathematica.
