Glito is free software. It is an explorer of IFS (Iterated Function Systems) in 2D.
IFS are a type of fractals. They are built by calculating the iterated images of a
point by contractive affine mappings. An IFS is a set of n (n ≥ 2) functions. A
function is chosen randomly to give a new image of a point.
Glito deals with linear functions:
Xn+1 = x1 Xn + x2 Yn + xc
Yn+1 = y1 Xn + y2 Yn + yc
and sinusoidal functions:
Xn+1 = x1 cos(Xn) + x2 sin(Yn) + xc
Yn+1 = y1 sin(Xn) + y2 cos(Yn) + yc
Glito can be used to draw Julia sets as well. Theorically we just need to draw the
points defined by:
Zn+1 = √( Zn - c )
where c is the parameter of the Julia. In Glito the equation is modified to make the
manipulation easier and to benefite from the linear mappings. We define, with
Zn = Xn + i Yn and c = xc + i yc:
Zn+1 = √( x1 Xn + x2 Yn + i (y1 Xn + y2 Yn) + c² )
Glito represents a function by a parallelogram. The center of the parallelogram has
for coordinates (xc, yc) and two contiguous edges correspond to the vectors (x1, y1)
and (x2, y2).
Glito's features:
* modification by translation, rotation, dilation... of the IFS functions
thanks to mouse
* real-time visualization of the modifications
* animations (transition between 2 IFS, rotation, zoom)
* IFS can be saved under an XML format or under the Fractint format
* images and animations can be saved in gray level, transparent or not.
File formats: PNG, PGM, BMP and MNG for the animations
