Fractal, bilinear transformation, iterated function system, Attractor


For solving the problem which typical Iterated Function System(IFS for short) attractor is very "regular",we attempt to use bilinear transformation IFS through geometric approach, and use it to generate a kinds of fractal set: box fractal set. The result shows that bilinear transformation IFS can generate attractors with a higher degree of flexibility、reality, and a higher modeling capability. It's important to research nonlinear interactive fractal modeling algorithm
