Description

This article is from the sci.fractals FAQ, by Michael C. Taylor and Jean-Pierre Louvet with numerous contributions by others.

56 Where can I obtain software packages to generate fractals?

Distributed X systems:

MandelSpawn: Mandelbrot/Julia on a network
ftp://ftp.x.org/R5contrib/
ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/X11/R5contrib/

gnumandel: Mandelbrot on a network
ftp://ftp.elte.hu/pub/software/unix/gnu/gnumandel.tar.Z

Software for computing fractal dimension:

"Fractal Dimension Calculator" is a Macintosh program which uses the
box-counting method to compute the fractal dimension of planar
graphical objects.

"FD3": estimates capacity, information, and correlation dimension from
a list of points. It computes log cell sizes, counts, log counts, log
of Shannon statistics based on counts, log of correlations based on
counts, two-point estimates of the dimensions at all scales examined,
and over-all least-square estimates of the dimensions.

for an enhanced Grassberger-Procaccia algorithm for correlation
dimension.

A MS-DOS version of FP3 is available by request to
gentry@altair.csustan.edu.
