Patterns from Math Rules Using Complex Numbers
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
Intricate patterns can be found based on simple math rules combined with a complex number where . The range parameter controls the size of the grid. You can change the power and the value function (real, complex, or absolute) to see different patterns.
