# Flower Fractals

Flower Fractals

Fractals are complex geometric shapes that exhibit self-similarity, that is, the object is made up of pieces that have the same structure as the whole [1].

There are many formulas and procedures that have been used to generate fractals with computer programs. This Demonstration uses Newton's formula for finding roots of a polynomial:

z

i+1

z

i

f()

z

i

f'()

z

i

applied to the polynomial , where is a complex number.

f(z)=+1

n

z

z

The bound is the maximum number of iterations and the resolution refers to the size of the grid.
