3D Fractals in Motion: Meet the Animated Mandelbulb

3D Fractals in Motion: Meet the Animated Mandelbulb | Family Learning | Scoop.it

In the world of fractals, the Mandelbrot Set is a stunning geometrical shape that results when you take a particular equation and apply it to a number, and then to the result, and then to each subsequent result after, ad infinitum. But what happens when you go from two dimensions to three? You get a “Mandelbulb.” And if you want to see how such a shape evolves over time, check out this stunning computer animation of a Mandelbulb modeling the movement of 250,000,000 particles.

Video of the Week #87, April 10th, 2013:

From: Meet the Mandelbulb by Jennifer Ouellette at Cocktail Party Physics.
