Mandelbrot Cauliflower Mandelbrot cauliflower Shopping in October, 2006 at Volante Farm, in Needham, MA, I came across this unusual cauliflower. It reminded me of a picture I saw somewhere of a piece of the Mandelbrot set. I doubt that I can find the picture I remember. Here is some of the correspondence so far. Two images I found with a Google search: from www.math.kyoto-u.ac.jp/~mitsu/gallery/M-zoom.html from www.spsu.edu/math/edwards/mandel/manpics/otherpics.htm

Du pliage papier et de la 3D Nous devons dire un grand merci à Simon SCHUBERT pour cette grande claque artistique. Je ne sais pas si vous avez déjà essayé de faire des pliages en papier, mais les résultats sont habituellement très décevants. Sur les « pliages » de Simon, c’est pas moins de 100 pliages différents par oeuvre, des jeux d’ombre à couper le souffle, etc… Bref, quand j’ai découvert ces créations, je suis tombé sur le cul tellement le travail est impressionnant, et plus loin que ça, il doit falloir une patience digne des plus grands bouddhistes pour arriver à ce résultat.

univers de l'homme moderne, pensées, humour et raisonnement Abundant Earth Environmental SuperStore Mandelbrot set from moire patterns Para 3D // GFX WARRIOR PARA 3d is a scripted plug-in for 3DS MAX which enables users to create parametric digital models and animations using all excessive modeling features of 3DS MAX and additional controllers available in the plug-in. Learn more:Parametric Array Easy to learn PARA 3D is designed to be as easy and user friendly as possible, and therefore early on it was decided to keep the layout and system similar to Material Editor in 3DMax, so as to cut out any learning/training period once beginning to use this new software. Everything can be done by simply dragging and dropping the chosen tool(s) and manipulating the values to whichever degree is required.There is an almost unlimited combination of tools that can be merged. Efficient as possible PARA 3D has been designed to be as efficient as possible, having as little memory usage as possible. We have managed to make it much liter than Parametric Array 1, even though we now have 28 controllers as opposed to only 5 in the original!

MATHCURVE.COM Marshall Kirkpatrick » 10 ways to make remembering to read your After building a rockin’ good OPML file for a client last month a classic problem has come up that I want to write about here: how do you stay motivated to read your feeds regularly? I subscribe to far more feeds than most people (3,000+) and am able to stay on top of them well enough. Here are some ways I do it, as well as some thoughts from some friends. Some of these are pretty standard but I hope that at least some are new to you. Please leave a comment if you can suggest other methods – I’d really like to be able to articulate ways we can prevent the all-too-common “info overload” backlash that’s leading many people to lose out on a lot of the potential offered by new web tools. Organize by priority I have two folders in my feedreader, one for high priority feeds that I try to scan at least once a day and one bulk folder for feeds that I get to when and if I can. Use a river of news Scan for things to read RSS is not email. Use other methods for “can’t miss news” Fear falling behind

The Mandelbrot Set : Good Math, Bad Math The most well-known of the fractals is the infamous Mandelbrot set. It’s one of the first things that was really studied *as a fractal*. It was discovered by Benoit Mandelbrot during his early study of fractals in the context of the complex dynamics of quadratic polynomials the 1980s, and studied in greater detail by Douady and Hubbard in the early to mid-80s. It’s a beautiful example of what makes fractals so attractive to us: it’s got an extremely simple definition; an incredibly complex structure; and it’s a rich source of amazing, beautiful images. It’s also been glommed onto by an amazing number of woo-meisters, who babble on about how it represents “fractal energies” – “fractal” has become a woo-term almost as prevalent as “quantum”, and every woo-site that babbles about fractals invariably uses an image of the Mandelbrot set. It’s also become a magnet for artists – the beauty of its structure, coming from a simple bit of math captures the interest of quite a lot of folks.
