Fractals are infinitely complex patterns that gain shape from simple structures bound to various mathematical rules and constraints. They are useful in modelling structures (such as snowflakes) in which similar patterns recur at progressively smaller scales, and in describing partly random or chaotic phenomena such as crystal growth and galaxy formation. They act as to bridge to explain naturally occurring shapes over a set of fixed rules. Over this article, I have explored few of the fascinating fractals I have come across and the visual treat they offer.

Lindenmayer Systems

An L-system consists of an alphabet of symbols that can be used to make strings, a collection of production that expand each symbol into some larger string of symbols, an initial “axiom” string from which to begin construction, and a mechanism for translating the generated strings into geometric structures. …
