Fractal imaging and simulations
Fractal Exoplanets is a web site about landscapes and images that are of grand expanses of mountains, valleys, rivers, oceans and skies. These images are of planetary scale in size and depth. They exist in the computer as mathematical equations known as fractals, but they represent the real world as it is because the real world they represent has mountains, valleys and other geological forms that are fractal in shape and form. This is the brainchild Dr. Ken Musgrave whose teacher was the late Dr. Benoit Mandelbrot, the father of fractal mathematics.
According to Dr. Musgrave these images could theoretically exist in the Universe as real planets as much as Planet Earth exists. In the images I have created represent images of rock layers, stunning mountain heights,river beds with sand and rock. The atmosphere appears real with fog and clouds and there is a sun located in a plane relative to the planets rotation in time. All in all these images are as real as it gets and the astounding thing is you can create any planet you can imagine from the ground up.
