I give you Sorbi – a program I’ve written for generating newton fractals.

## Some Pretty Pictures

These have been generated using Sorbi.

## What are Newton Fractals?

Newton Fractals are a type of iterated fractal, created when performing the Newton-Raphson iteration on the complex plane.

### Newton-Raphson Iteration

The resulting fractals can be coloured by root reached, or by the number of iterations required to reach the root (or various other methods, such as the value of after iterations.

## How do I get the program?

### Pull from git

git pull git://github.com/bavardage/sorbi.git

### …And run the program

sorbi/gui.py

### Requirements:

- python
- pygtk
- numpy
- PIL – ‘Python Imaging Library’
