Fractals & Chaos Assignment for 5/26

If you’d like to play around with the piecewise complex linear function fractal generator, you can find a link to download the program here.

If you weren’t in class, we debriefed/formed some conclusions about linear functions then moved on to quadratics. For now, we’re keeping it simple and just iterating z -> z^2. We iterated several test seeds to start to see what kind of behavior would be expected in this iteration process, so pick a few below and iterate them (remembering that [r,theta]x[r,theta] = [r^2,2theta]) to see what happens for yourself. Should the value of theta ever exceed 360 degrees, reset it to a value within the 0 < theta < 360 domain.
