Gnofract 4D

For when 2D fractals just aren't weird enough

Tim Whidbey


There is no excellent beauty which hath not some strangeness in the proportion.

Francis Bacon

Gnofract 4D is a program which draws complex mathematical objects known as fractals, including the Mandelbrot and Julia sets and many others. It allows you to treat a fractal which has more than one parameter as a four-dimensional object and interactively view slices of this object from arbitrary angles, giving rise to some very unusual images.

This user's manual provides a tutorial introduction to Gnofract 4D and the mathematical background behind it, information on how to use the graphical interface, and reference material on the language used to write fractal formulas.
