GMandel meets Julia sets

Filed under: blag — Tags: , , , — Fernando J. Pereda @ 3:08 am

I was bored and decided to hack support for viewing Julia sets into GMandel. The code could be nicer, but that will come tomorrow. I should really stop slacking and make a proper hierarchy of widgets (GFractMandel and GFractJulia should inherit a common GFractWidget) to make the code more manageable but this will do for now.

These are some examples of Julia sets generated with GMandel:

I strongly recommend The Computational Beauty of Nature to those interested or curious about this kind of stuff. It is a nice book that can even be read without too much mathematical or computer science background. One of the nice things about fractals and chaos is that you can see most the stuff yourself through pretty pictures.
