Aesthetic Patterns from the Perturbed Orbits of Discrete Dynamical Systems

  • Krzysztof Gdawiec
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8104)


The aim of this paper is to present some modifications of the orbits generation algorithm of discrete dynamical systems. The first modification is based on introduction of a perturbation mapping in the standard Picard iteration used in the orbit generation algorithm. The perturbation mapping is used to alter the orbit during the iteration process. The second modification combines the standard Picard iteration with the iteration which uses the perturbation mapping. The obtained patterns have unrepeatable structure and aesthetic value. They can be used for instance as textile patterns, ceramics patters or can be used in jewellery design.
