IFS: Rotation, Translation, and Scaling

An iterated function system (IFS) consists of a set of multivariate maps from which a random choice is made at each iteration. If each function of a IFS satisfies certain conditions, the dynamics will converge on a fractal set.

This Demonstration allows the user to explore a family of simple two-map 2D iterated function systems, where each map consists of a combined rotation, translation, and enlargement (with scale factor less than 1).
