Fractals are geometric figures that are recursive. For the fractal mountains, we start with a single triangle. We then pick the mid-points of the 3 sides of these triangles, join them, and create 4 more triangles. Then we do the same for each of the 4 triangles. This recursion is the fractal part of the mountains. In order to make these triangles into a mountain, on each such division, we also raise the midpoint of the sides.

These are 3D models generated using only elementary mathematics and C++ code and then rendered using Maya.

Who says mathematics is not cool?

Recently I happened to be working on my iMac browsing the web for some information about the MINI, and listening to The Corrs in the background and that made me think…how could I have everything I like in one place? And that gave me the idea of the iLike picture (Yes…I am a Mac addict), that would have everything that I like and that I think is cool in one place!
