Today I am mostly thinking about snowflakes. (and working on my phd stuff honest Beryl).
Something about watching the snowflakes at the weekend has captured my imagination. I figured that being of a semi nerdal persuasion I would look into algorithms for generating snowflakes. The following if a list of links relating to snowflake generation.
John Maeda's Simplicity blog has an interesting piece on the Snowflake-A-Thon at MIT in 2005:
The winners code:
there is the the Koch Snowflake algorithm which seems like and interesting starting poitn for research but produces dull results:
Physics of snowflake formation:
Examples of snowflake code:
Stand alone generators worth a mention:
This list is by no means complete. I seem to get well over a thousand views per day, it cant all be google spiders. I would really welcome your ideas about snowflakes and any interesting links I can add to this post
