Above is a header logo-thing I have been working on for a friend from work ~ still in developmental stages, it's about a program to teach people paediatric resuscitation skills I think...

Meg asked "

*it is varying based on mathematics? It doesn't appear to be a repeating pattern*" - regarding the graphic example of the

**henon phase variations**below...the equation itself meg, is:

xn+1 = xn cos(a) - (yn - xn2) sin(a)

yn+1 = xn sin(a) + (yn - xn2) cos(a)

yn+1 = xn sin(a) + (yn - xn2) cos(a)

**x**and

**y**which after a number of iterations gives us a lovely fractal pattern, the nature of which changes depending on what value is entered for

**a**. The example below runs the equation for a certain number of iterations (the more iterations the more complex the picture, but the slower the render time) - It varies because each time it runs a random variable is set for

**a**- I've been a bit tricksy and set some other random variables into the equation, such as line thickness and so on as well, but basically that's the gist of it.

**Paul Bourke**who wrote the equation above, is a faculty member of the centre for astrophysics and supercomputing at Swinburne University in my home town of Melbourne and he has many other fascinating experiments that can be seen here.
