|Ken Shirriff -> Fractals|
You probably know Mandelbrot's equation z -> z^2+c, but what happens if you want to use -2 for the exponent? Details here.
I'm currently experimenting with techniques to use fractional exponents in Mandelbrot fractals. Details here.
I have written papers on how to generate fractals from Voronoi diagrams, reciprocals, and polynomial composite functions, or with the xfractint program. See my bat fractal and Java Mandelbrot.
My fractals have appeared in The Pattern Book and Computers and the Imagination.
I also have some (non-fractal) patterns designed to appeal to babies.
