In this presentation, we will delve into the world of fractals. A form of mathematics that has long been studied, but only until recently has it had the name. When most think of fractals they think of the work of Benoit Mandelbrot, which we will touch on. However, we will mostly be working on the findings of Micheal Barnsley. More specifically, we will be using his creation of the Barnsley fern, which uses iterated function systems (IFSs), as a basis for generating a specific fern found in nature, the Western Sword fern. Along with IFSs, the Barnsley Fern uses matrices and affine transformations to generate the fern, something we will use in our process as well.
