M03: Fractal Geometry and Chaos Game

M03: Fractal Geometry and Chaos Game (分形幾何及混沌遊戲)

Fractals are abundant in nature, which includes trees, cloud and galaxies. Although fractals have very complicated structures, they are made by repeating a simple process that involves probability and the concept of contraction. In this talk, we will play a chaos game to illustrative how a fractal is generated from a repeating process using the computer. Then, we consider some linear functions from which complicated spiral patterns and a ‘fern’ are generated using the computer.

分形在自然界中非常豐富,包括樹木、雲和星系。儘管分形具有非常複雜的結構,但它們是通過重複但簡單的過程生成的,其中涉及簡單的概率和收縮的概念。在這個演講中,我們將玩一個混沌遊戲來說明如何在重複過程中,運用電腦生成分形。然後,我們考慮一些線性函數,運用電腦產生複雜的螺旋圖案和「蕨類植物」。
