What - Why - How - Where


What

It's a web-based, interactive fractal explorer. Its codes are JavaScript. It's intended for easy-use by non-mathers.

A fractal is a particular type of thing that has a self-repeating pattern. It might be that the mutatable Mandelbrot and mutatable Burning Ship aren't technically fractals, but I don't care.

Why

Because neat things are neat.

How

Fractals of this sort can be imaged (approximately) by doing many maths — particularly, simple repetitive arithmetic. The procedure is very simple, but to make a neat image, a great many arithmetics are needed. This fractal explorer uses JavaScript and some features of HTML5 to convince a computer to do all the arithmetics in the right way, and then to display an image for humans.

Where

This thing in action.
