Hello, I haven't posted here in a while. I'm busy nowadays but mainly want to share something fascinating I discovered.
It all stems from one equation from me intentionally trying to discover a chaotic attractor. I achieved that and something even more important in this one equation.
NEWX = tan((A*Y)*(180/pi))-sin((B*X)*(180/pi))
NEWY = sin((C*X)*(180/pi))-tan((D*Y)*(180/pi))
Now let A, B, C, D be any number. You get a chaotic attractor.
Here's where it gets interesting:
Let A = -2;
Let B = -3;
Let C = 0;
Let D = -1;
Let it render for a while. Do you see it? It's the Feigenbaum diagram. This really shocked me.
I only rendered with some really slow GNU Octave code. I might make a real implementation later. I wouldn't be surprised if Jason Rampe implements this in Visions of Chaos. He checks my blog.
