Unformatted text preview: left side of Fig. 2.40. If the imitial shape is a point, the deterministic algorithm still will converge. See the right side of Fig. 2.40. Figure 2.39: Two fractal snowflakes Elton [48] gave a proof that the random algorithm converges if some of the Ti are not contractions, so long as on average the Ti are contractions. Figure 2.40: Applying the deterministic IFS algorithm to sonwflake rules. Left: starting with a circle. Right: starting with a point. The left snowflake of Fig. 2.39 is made with three transformations. The first transformation scales by 0.4: it fills the middle of the snowflake with a small copy of the whole flake. The second transformation makes an elongated version of the flake and translates it to the right. This is the right branch of the flake. The last transformation rotates by π/3; iterated applications of this T3 builds the other five arms of the snowflake. Be careful about trying to separate out too fully the roles of the Ti . For example, without T3 , T1 and T2 generate a horizontal line segment....
