However, a lot in the book is devoted to build SVG vectorial and bitmap outputs and save them on disk wich, even if cool, is not at all what I expected from a fractals book, since I only wanted to GENERATE the fractals.
Even so, the book is long enough to explain every aspect of fractal building in a computer and the inner workings of doing so.
I would have liked some explanations on WHY do fractals appear under such conditions, but I suppose that would be the scope of another book entirely. Anyway, a little chapter with some explanations on the why and how of fractals in general terms would have made this book almost perfect. (right now, the book teachs you how to build a fractal, but not why are those fractal patterns apearing from pseudo random points for example. It neither explains what makes those specific patterns special over any other possible pattern.)
What I really liked is everything is explained in plain c code, not in math notation, wich is what I needed :)
Wonder no more. If you have a little working knowledge of math and programming, Ben Trube's instructions and enthusiasm will take you the rest of the way. He walks you through each of the programs step by step, and shows you how to tailor them to your own preferences. From the Sierpinski Triangle to the Mandelbrot Set, this book has you covered.
Bonus: tons of pretty pictures!
