Go to the '016 Fall IFS Gallery to see these winning entries and all of the other great images created this semester.

CAMPY 2016 was held at CCSU on May 17, 2016 at CCSU. This was the 10th year that CCSU has hosted CAMPY. The participants in my session created fractal and geometric images using a program called IFS 2.0. Check out the great work that they did by clicking on the 2016 CAMPY Gallery below.

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.
