              Das vorliegende Arbeitsbuch ist Teil eines Paketes von verschiedenen Materialien, die das Ziel haben, das Thema Chaos und Fraktale in den mathematisch-naturwissenschaftlichen Unterricht einzufuhren. Ein weiteres Anliegen besteht darin, das mentale Bild von Mathematik im Bewusstse...in der Schuler attraktiver zu gestalten. Mathematik ist die Antwort des Menschen auf die Komplexitat der Welt. Mathematik ist die Ordnungsmacht im Dschungel der Phanomene. Deshalb ist Mathematik le bendig, frisch und aktuell. Deshalb gibt es zwischen einzelnen Teilgebieten und Ergebnissen der Mathematik immer wieder uberraschende Querverbindungen, die oft das Verstandnis einer Sache erst wirklich erhellen. Und deshalb bietet es sich an, durch entdeckendes, explorierendes Lernen die Anziehungskraft dieser Eigenschaften der Mathematik im Unterricht auszunutzen. Chaos und Fraktale bieten hierfur eine besondere neue Chance. Beide sind jung und aktuell und belegen so ohne weiteres, dass Mathematik lebt. Fur beide gilt, dass einige ihrer schrittmachenden Entdeckungen nicht ohne Hilfe von Computern moglich gewesen waren. Damit rucken faszinie rende Computerexperimente naturlich in den Mittelpunkt. Beide sind hochgradig interdisziplinar. Dieses heisst, dass gehaltvolle Anwendungen nicht erst muhsam konstruiert werden mussen. Beide behandeln Themen, die von sich aus wirken. Tatsachlich durchlaufen seit Ende der siebziger Jahre Mathematik und Naturwissenschaften eine Welle, die in ihrer Kraft, Kreativitat und Weitraumigkeit langst ein interdisziplinares Ereignis er sten Ranges geworden ist. Das andauernde Interesse innerhalb und ausserhalb der Wissenschaften ist in einer aufruttelnden Betroffenheit begrundet, die eine radikale Wende in dem uberkommenen naturwissenschaftlichen Weltbild und manchen uberdehnten Interpretationen ankundigt.

              It is the first book which discusses fractals solely from the point of view of computer graphics. Conversely, fractal geometry now plays an important role in the rendering, modelling and animation of natural phenomena and fantastic shapes in computer graphics.

              Focuses upon the images that have provided a lure into an investigation of the intricate properties embedded within them. The general pattern and specific steps used to construct a fractal image comprise an iterated function system. This work aims to investigate the processes and... often surprising results of applying such systems.
