This book offers a comprehensive explanation of iterated function systems and how to use them in generation of complex objects. Discussion covers the most popular fractal models applied in the field of image synthesis; surveys iterated function system models; explores algorithms for creating and manipulating fractal objects, and techniques for implementing the algorithms, and more. The book includes both descriptive text and pseudo-code samples for the convenience of graphics application programmers.
