QuoteOriginally posted by: outrun3d fractals don't exist! That's the answer I got as a freshman when I asked my university prof the exact same question.Mandelbrot and Julia set use complex numbers and those are "2d". There are also "4d" complex numbers called quaternions, and also "8d" .. but not 3.http://math.stackexchange.com/questions ... numbersOne attempt to get 3d fractals is the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandelbulb --of course there are 3d fractals, but not ones based on iterating complex numbers. E.g. it's easy to make a 3d version of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pythagoras ... tal%29frim strict mathematical point of view you are right.

Elementary Programming Challenges or hereThe 3n + 1 ProblemConsider the following algorithm to generate a sequence of numbers. Start with an integer n. If n is even, divide by 2. If n is odd, multiply by 3 and add 1. Repeat this process with the new value of n, terminating when n = 1. For example, the following sequence of numbers will be generated for n = 22:22 11 34 17 52 26 13 40 20 10 5 16 8 4 2 1...From the Downloadable File extract/execute program ExSan.If you are using Avast Antivirus, please disable it for a while in order to allow ExSan create output files.

Approach your problem from the right end and begin with the answers. Then one day, perhaps you will find the final question..

QuoteOriginally posted by: CuchulainnChaos and ODEsI must install Boost right away. It seems that some of the functions are already in this library. I do not want to re inventing the wheel. BTW does Boost have Euler / Kutta, ODE solver ?

views 137730Elementary Programming Challenges or hereQuoteMaximum SumGiven a 2-dimensional array of positive and negative integers, find the sub-rectangle with the largest sum. The sum of a rectangle is the sum of all the elements in that rectangle. In this problem the sub-rectangle with the largest sum is referred to as the maximal sub-rectangle. A sub-rectangle is any contiguous sub-array of size 1 x 1 or greater located within the whole array.From the Downloadable File extract/execute program ExSan.If you are using Avast Antivirus, please disable it for a while in order to allow ExSan create output files.
