I was asked to deliver some work on chaos theory and my group choose Lorenz Attractor as object of study. It’s a really nice chaos function as you can learn in the wiki page dedicated to the subject.The work was developed in OpenGL but I’m pretty sure that it would have been easier to do so in PovRay. Ok, bad joke :PI found some useful links for OpenGL Beginners from IST (here) and UMINHO (here). If you are just learning OpenGL give them a look. (Portuguese only, sorry)If you want to give the application a try download the sources at http://nunojobpinto.googlepages.com/isdGL.zip and compile them. You’ll need GCC, build-essentials and – who would of thought? – the OpenGL libraries.It’s all explained in a slightly demented readme file. Have a nice week!
