# Generalized Ulam Sets in the Plane

Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

This Demonstration plots a list of points of the generalized Ulam set in the plane after steps of iteration. The recursive rule to generate is to append vectors to the previous set of minimal Euclidean norms that can be uniquely written as the sum of two distinct vectors from . The specified list of linearly independent initial vectors completely determines the points.
