+fmath "The math behind fractals"
+fmath1 "Fractals are a very new field
+of math, so there are still lots
+of unsolved questions."
+fmath2 "Even the definitions are not clean"
+fmath3 "We usually call something a fractal
+if some self-similarity can be found"
+
+
+def1 "One of the possible definitions is..."
+#Definition from the intro.xaf is displayed here.
+#If it is a problem in your langage catalog, let me
+#know and I will create a special key
+def2 "What does this mean?"
+def3 "To explain it we first need
+to understand what the topological and
+Hausdorff Besicovich dimensions are."
+
+topo1 "The topological dimension
+is the \"normal\" dimension."
+topo2 "A point has 0 dimensions"
+topo3 "A line has 1"
+topo4 "A surface has 2, etc..."
+
+hb1 "The definition of the
+Hausdorff Besicovich dimension
+comes from the simple fact that:"
+hb2 "A line that is zoomed so that it doubles
+in length is twice as long as it was."
+hb3 "On the other hand, the size
+of a square that is similarly zoomed
+grows by four times."
+hb4 "Similar rules work in higher
+dimensions too."
+hb5 "To calculate dimensions from
+this fact, you can use the
+following equation:"
+hb6 "dimension = log s / log z
+where z is the zoom change and
+s is the size change"
+hb7 "for a line with zoom 2,
+the size change is also 2.
+log 2 / log 2 = 1"
+hb8 "for a square with zoom 2,
+the size change is 4.
+log 4 / log 2 = 2"
+hb9 "So this definition gives
+the same results for normal shapes"
+hb10 "Things will become more interesting
+with fractals..."
+
+hb11 "Consider a snowflake curve"
+hb12 "which is created by repeatedly
+splitting a line into four lines."
+hb13 "The new lines are 1/3 the size of
+the original line"
+hb14 "After zooming 3 times, these lines will
+become exactly as big as the
+original lines."
+hb15 "Because of the self similarity created
+by the infinite repeating
+of this metamorphosis,"
+hb15b "each of these parts will
+become an exact copy of the original
+fractal."
+hb16 "Because there are four such copies, the
+fractal size grows by 4X"
+hb17 "After putting these values in equations:
+log 4 / log 3 = 1.261"
+hb18 "We get a value greater than 1
+(The topological dimension
+of the curve)"
+hb19 "The Hausdorff Besicovich dimension
+(1.261) is greater than the
+topological dimension."
+hb20 "According to this definition,
+the snowflake is a fractal."
+
+defe1 "This definition, however, is not
+perfect since it excludes lots of
+shapes which are fractals."
+defe2 "But it shows one of the
+interesting properties of fractals,"
+defe3 "and it is quite popular."
+defe4 "The Hausdorff Besicovich dimension
+is also often called a
+\"fractal dimension\""

+escape "The math behind fractals
+
+chapter 2 - Escape time fractals"
+escape1 "Some fractals (like snowflake)
+are created by simple subdivision
+and repetition."
+escape2 "XaoS can generate a different
+category of fractals - called
+escape time fractals."
+escape3 "The method to generate them
+is somewhat different, but is also
+based on using iteration."
+escape4 "They treat the whole screen as
+a complex plane"
+escape5 "The real axis is placed horizontally"
+escape6 "and the imaginary is placed vertically"
+escape7 "Each point has its own orbit"
+escape8 "The trajectory of which is calculated
+using the iterative function, f(z,c)
+where z is the previous position and c
+is the new position on the screen."
+escape9 "For example in the Mandelbrot
+set, the iterative function is z=z^c+c"
+orbit1 "In case we want to examine
+point 0 - 0.6i"
+orbit2 "We assign this parameter to c"
+orbit3 "Iteration of the orbit
+starts at z=0+0i"
+orbit3b "Then we repeatedly calculate
+the iterative function, and we
+repeatedly get a new z value for
+the next iteration."
+orbit4 "We define the point that belongs to the
+set, in case the orbit stays finite."
+orbit5 "In this case it does..."
+orbit6 "So this point is inside the set."
+orbit7 "In other cases it would
+go quickly to infinity."
+orbit8 "(for example, the value 10+0i
+The first iteration is 110,
+the second 12110 etc..)"
+orbit9 "So such points are outside the set."
+
+bail1 "We are still speaking about
+infinite numbers and iterations
+of infinite numbers..."
+bail2 "But computers are
+finite, so they can't
+calculate fractals exactly."
+bail3 "It can be proved that in the
+case where the orbit's distance from
+zero is more than 2, the orbit
+always goes to inifinity."
+bail4 "So we can interrupt calculations
+after the orbit fails this test.
+(This is called the bailout test)"
+bail5 "In cases where we calculate points
+outside the set, we now need just a
+finite number of iterations."
+bail6 "This also creates the colorful
+stripes around the set."
+bail7 "They are colored according to the
+number of iterations of orbits needed
+to fall in the bailout set."
+iter1 "Inside the set we still
+need infinite numbers of calculations"
+iter2 "The only way to do it is to interrupt
+the calculations after a given
+number of iterations and
+use the approximate results"
+iter3 "The maximal number of iterations
+therefore specifies how exact
+the approximation will be."
+iter4 "Without any iterations you would create
+just a circle with a radius of 2
+(because of the bailout condition)"
+iter5 "Greater numbers of iterations makes
+more exact approximations, but
+it takes much longer to calculate."
+limit1 "XaoS, by default, calculates
+170 iterations."
+limit2 "In some areas you could zoom for a
+long time without reaching this limit."
+limit3 "In other areas you get
+inexact results quite soon."
+limit4 "Images get quite boring
+when this happens."
+limit5 "But after increasing the number
+of iterations, you will get lots of new
+and exciting details."
+ofracts1 "Other fractals in XaoS are
+calculated using different formulae
+and bailout tests, but the method
+is basically the same."
+ofracts2 "So many calculations are required
+that XaoS performs lots of
+optimizations.
+
+You might want to read about
+these in the file
