XaoS is an interactive fractal zoomer. It allows the user to continuously zoom in or out of a fractal in a fluid, continuous motion. This capability makes XaoS great for exploring fractals, and it’s fun!
If you don’t know what fractals are, don’t worry. XaoS includes many animated tutorials that make learning about fractals fun and easy. These tutorials are also a great introduction to all of XaoS’s features.
XaoS can display many different fractal types, including Mandelbrot, Barnsley, Newton, Phoenix, and many more. Fractals can be rendered using various coloring methods and planes for an almost endless variety of images. XaoS also supports switching between Julia and Mandelbrot sets for each formula.
XaoS currently runs on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and other Unix-like systems. Older versions are available for DOS, BeoS, and more. Download a copy for your operating system today.
XaoS is free software, licensed under the GPL. It was originally written by Thomas Marsh and Jan Hubicka, and it is currently maintained by Zoltan Kovacs and J.B. Langston. Countless other improvements have been contributed by volunteers around the world. You can help improve XaoS, too.
