Description & Goals

Summary

XaoS is an interactive fractal zoomer. It allows the user to continuously to zoom in or out of a fractal in a fluid, continuous motion. This capability makes XaoS great for exploring fractals, and it’s just plain fun!

If you don’t know what fractals are, don’t worry! XaoS includes many animated tutorials that make learning about fractals fun and easy. These tutorials are also a great introduction to all of XaoS’s features.

XaoS can display many different fractal types, including Mandelbrot, Barnsley, Newton, Phoenix, and many more. Fractals can be rendered using various coloring methods and planes for an almost endless variety of images. XaoS also supports switching between Julia and Mandelbrot sets for each formula.

XaoS is free software, licensed under the GPL. It was originally written by Thomas Marsh and Jan Hubicka, and it is currently maintained by Zoltan Kovacs. Countless other improvements have been contributed by volunteers around the world. You can help improve XaoS, too!

OLPC Port

The XaoS activity is a port to the OLPC of an old-skool fractal generator application written in C. This OLPC port is based on sfXaoS, an extended version of XaoS made by adding our SFFE formula evaluator to official version. This gives us possibility to explore our own fractals.

Collaboration

Not yet. It would be interesting (and easy) to broadcast fractal parameters over the network.
