are a huge topic.
They're based on mathematics, and deep explanations of
fractals cannot avoid math for long. They can require
billions of calculations, which means they cannot
realistically be done without computers, so some
consideration must be given to the software used to
produce the images. But they are also art, and
if fractals weren't aesthetically pleasing we wouldn't

Collected here are a number of pages describing various
