L-System Fractal Overview

An L-System or Lindenmayer System is a set of rules that recursively define the movements of a virtual pen to produce a fractal. Lindenmayer System fractals were developed in 1968 by Aristid Lindenmayer.


L-System Fractals

Fractal: L-System Orbit TrapThe Fractal Science Kit can process L-System programs that conform to the syntax used by the Fractint program. See the L-System Language section for details. An L-System fractal can be viewed as a stand-alone fractal or used to define an L-System based Orbit Trap.


Built-in L-System Programs

Fractal: L-System Orbit TrapThe Fractal Science Kit fractal generator has 28 built-in L-System programs including KochSnowflake, KochIsland, Hilbert, SierpinskiTriangle, SierpinskiSquare, SierpinskiCarpet, Dragon, PeanoSZ, Cesaro, DoubleCesaro, FlowSnake, Quartet, RhombusTile, HexGasket, and more. In addition, hundreds of these programs can be found on the Internet. See the links at the bottom of the L-System Language section for details.
