Screen Shot 2015-11-27 at 13.38.40

This post marks, only shy of by three days, when this blog was begun on December 28th, 2008, and it marks as well the birthday of scientific giant Isaac Newton in 1642, whose discoveries brought on the age of industry and the scientific revolution, changing the world forever.

So, here are a set of images using the very mathematical technique that he developed along with contributions from Joseph Raphson and others, for finding the zeroes or roots of of functions using real numbers applied to fractals.

May you all have a wonderful winter solstice holiday, however you celebrate it or whatever you call it, with a most pleasant and awesomositous new year. Double click to enlarge these.
