Iterated Function Systems with OCaml

Fractals are images of infinite complexity, characterized by being "similar" to themselves in some sense at all scales of magnification.

Iterated function systems are a method of generating fractals using self-similarity. An IFS image is defined as being the sum of geometric transforms of itself. It turns out that simply specifying the transforms along with a weight for each transform is enough to determine the image.

How to use this code

In your shell
