A gingerbreadman drawn using chaos. Points are chosen at random, then repeatedly moved to new locations according to a simple rule [the new y coordinate is the old x one, and the new x is 1 - the old y + |the old x|]. This rule is called the gingerbreadman map, of course. The trajectories shown are chaotic, showing complex behaviour from such a simple rule. Hexagonal areas seem to build up the picture. [detailed version] [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.
