This program is inspired by the book Fractal Horizons by Clifford Pickover.
A series of two dimensional chaotic systems is included. It is also possible to randomly seed the algorithm, and search for interesting and unique variations.
According to chaos theory, nonlinear equations can result in complicated, chaotic behaviour. The two dimensional quadratic iterated map is:
GLT Chaos uses a random number generator to select the twelve constants. The iteration formula is used to display a cloud of points.
OpenGL and GLUT are used for display, making the program extremely portable. Source code is available for the adventurous.
