Mathematical Visualization Menagerie
This is a collection of mathematical visualization functions written in Python using the Matplotlib library. Please watch our greatest hits on youtube and visit the VIZ blog for more examples and information.
Complex Roots (video) - Histograms of the roots of complex polynomials with varying coefficients.
Dynamical Systems (video) - Fractals generated by iterating various functions over random points.
Mystery Curves (gif) - Periodic complex functions.
Newton's Method (video) - Fractals generated by the convergence of random points towards the roots of functions.
Polar Curves (images) - Visual experiments using polar coordinates.
Random Walks (images) - Visual experiments using random processes.
