Graphics with Mathematica: Fractals, Julia Sets, Patterns and Natural Forms
Chonat Getz and Janet Helmstedt, 2004, Elsevier, 322 pp., hardcover,
This book gives detailed instructions for constructing interesting 2D and 3D fractals using iterated functions systems in Mathematica. The programs used to generate these graphics are easily adaptable to many variations, and a range of different coloring techniques are introduced. Many different types of Julia sets and parameter sets are constructed, such as the Mandelbrot set. The reader interested in fractals will obtain practice in graphics and coloring in the earlier chapters "Using Color in Graphics" and "Patterns Constructed from Straight Lines."
This book is available in the Wolfram Research bookstore.
