Too bad GM never built this Cadilac. It would have been called the Cyclone.
This page is for the use of students in Dr. Waiveris's math classes at CCSU.

To M 119, M 218 and M 222 students: Your last homework assignment and your IFS questions have been attached to a note on your class page.

The Spring 2015 IFS Gallery is open for posting for one more week. A lot of new galleries have been opened so far with some really good images. Check them out and get your gallery open if you haven't done so already. Information on the assignment and how to post images is contained in an attachment on your class page.

Old IFS galleries and class pages have been moved to the IFS Galleries and Previous Class pages.

CAMPY on Campus held its annual set of workshops on May 15 at CCSU. The 31 students in my session created fractal and geometric images using IFS 2.0. and posted their images in a special online gallery. All 31 participants opened galleries and posted images with 159 images posted altogether. Their gallery has been moved to the IFS Galleries page below. Check out their work and all of the great images posted by students in past years.

IFS 2.0 and IFS 3.0 available for download. IFS 3.0 is an upgrade of IFS 2.0 and can be used to create animations. You will still need a program like GIF Construction Kit (which I use) to convert the .bmp images to .gif images and animate the images. But it is pretty neat. Also gifninja is a free piece of software that can be downloaded from the internet and used to convert the .bmp images into .gif images. Check out the IFS animations gallery below to see some examples.

FYI--All of the textbooks that will be used in the courses offered by the Department of Mathematical Sciences this semester are listed on the Department's homepage which can be accessed by going to the CCSU homepage. This should help you shop around to find the best price as well as get a head start on a course.

IFS 2.0 and IFS 3.0 are free and available to any person or institution that would like to use them. Any person or institution that downloads a copy is also welcome to make it free and available to any other people or institutions that would like to use it. To download a free copy of IFS 2.0 or IFS 3.0 and get in on the fun yourself go to the downloads page. There is also a gallery of 50 sample images with the transformations below.
