We spent today practicing finding the Hausdorff Dimension for a variety of fractal and template designs, running into some interesting potential problems as well as a few surprising results.
By tomorrow (Thursday), please read the passage Ants in Labyrinths, from Ivars Peterson’s The Mathematical Tourist. As usual, make a note of questions you have and passages you think are significant.
And don’t forget the expectations for the soon-to-be-announced Fractal Art Show! I expect from each of you one entry in three of the following categories:
- Tree (or shrubs, bushes, weeds, etc.)
- Realistic (other natural phenomena)
- Artistic (patterns, designs, etc.)
Again, each student will be submitting three entries, each falling in a separate category. You are welcome to submit more designs if you would like, but they will be placed in a separate “Additional Works” category.
Please feel free to work on your designs outside of class and transfer them to the laptops we’ve been using in class.
