Peter de Jong Attractors

Posted by & filed under Demonstrations Project, Mathematica, Wolfram.

The Wolfram Demonstrations Project published a program I wrote in Mathematica code that visualizes recursive formula attributed to Peter de Jong:

x_n = sin(a y_n) - cos(b x_n)
y_n = sin(c x_n) - cos(d y_n)

It can produce beautiful nontrivial structures called attractors. Click on the picture to go to the Wolfram demonstration page where you can animate and interact with this program.
