Description

In this paper we study the problem of fractal image generation using Mathematica. Among the different methods, probabilistic algorithm, also known as “chaos game”, is one of the most used methods for generating fractals. Working in the framework of multifractal analysis, numerical and graphical capabilities of Mathematica allows us to obtain the most efficient choice for the probabilities of the probabilistic algorithm to render the attractor of the IFS as fast as possible.
