Polynomiography software allows the creation of beautiful images by inputting numbers into a software.
Formally, polynomiography is the art and science of visualization in approximation of zeros of polynomials. This visualization is via fractal and non-fractal images created based on the mathematical convergence properties of iteration functions.
I have invented the name "polynomiography" as a combination of the word "polynomial" (a mathematical function defined as a linear combination of integral powers of a variable), and the suffix "graphy".
Informally, polynomiography stands for a certain graph of polynomials, but not in the usual sense of graphing, say a quadratic polynomial.
An individual image is defined to be a "polynomiograph".
The purpose of these pages is to display a small sample of the many images that I have created using a software for polynomiography. The underlying mathematical theory behind polynomiography is addressed in a PDF file. The interested reader may return to this web site from time to time for future announcements about polynomiography as well as information on exhibitions of images from my collection.
