Using fractals as elements of
websites and eBooks
We know that
fractal - the image obtained on the basis of "Julie set" class forms,
which are calculated by complex numerical coordinates. Each point is attributed
to a certain color depending on how it behaves while performing a number of
simple but repetitive mathematical operations, which reflecting the final
geometric pattern. In the words of famous German computer graphics Frank
Herbert: « I think that art coming centuries, looking back on our time, come to
conclusions very different from those which come to our contemporaries.
Respected currently painters and sculptors will be forgotten, but the emergence
of electronic media will be declared the most significant change in the history
of art. »
elements using fractal design have become very popular in screensavers of monitors in the
"pending" and a in the video player. The use of such elements in the
design of websites and electronic publications would allow pain to create exquisite
design. Therefore, market analysis software to create fractals for choice optimum
in terms of the use to design websites and e-books is important.
One of the perspective
types of computer graphics is fractal art. The concept of fractal, fractal
geometry and fractal art appeared in the late 70's, now firmly established as a
routine mathematicians and computer artists.
On the basis
of the analysis found that many image editors have built-in tools to create
fractal patterns. However, these tools are usually of secondary importance and
have limited scope for adjusting generate fractal patterns.
that the most successful to create fractals are Chaotica multiplatform editor,
which allows not only to build the image, but also to change it in real time. The
program gives us a lot of features that help achieve the desired effect. For
example color correction, adding new angles, work above, synchronization with
the program Apophysis. Similarly by downloading your picture, the program
itself can randomly put corners and give us a complete picture fractal image.
the usual rendering of simple shapes can create multi-fractal animation and
video series. The program allows us to increase / decrease / rotate the 3D
model shapes to create complex animations with multiple effects inspired, where
each corner moves in its chaotic way.

numerous elements were created animation.
that the Chaotica Editor, offers great opportunities for creating and using
fractals to process electronic books and sites in the form of still images and
