The Family Tree of Fractal Curves By Jeffrey Ventrella
Paperback: $20.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book explains a taxonomy of plane-filling curves (fractal curves with a fractal dimension of 2). it includes the classic fractal curves described in Mandelbrot's original book. Many new fractal... More > curves are introduced. The taxonomy is based upon the Gaussian integers and the Eisenstein integers - each forming a lattice (square and triangular). These lattices have algebraic properties, which allows number theory to be used in describing and classifying these curves. This work has been under development for over 30 years. An earlier version of this taxonomy is described in the book "Brain-filling Curves", also by Jeffrey Ventrella. More on plane-filling curves can be found at fractalcurves.com< Less
Divisor Drips and Waves By Jeffrey Ventrella
eBook (ePub): $2.00
A pattern-finding journey through a shimmering universe of large composite numbers, this book starts with a simple graph of divisors and expands it into a vast visual sea of interlocking patterns.... More > Why do mathematicians keep asking if there is any meaning to the sequence of prime numbers? Just think of the primes as the negative spaces behind overlapping composite patterns. The chaotic sequence of primes that pass through the Sieve of Eratosthenes is far less interesting than the Sieve itself! Did you know that the numbers in the range of nine quintillion have a hidden pattern (nested parabolas, reflection rays, swirling proto-galaxies)? These images could not have been seen before the computer allowed us to peer into the dense fabric of numbers. This book will inspire math educators, visual thinkers, and pattern lovers.< Less
