Gif Movies of Oliver Knill
The second longest Gif movie (repeats only after 2000 current ages of the universe). The longest Gif movie (repeats after more than 1 googol (10 100 ) ages of the universe). Has more frames than the number of atoms in the universe.
These Examples were done using MATHEMATICA on a SUN or my NEXT, converted to GIF files under UNIX using the PBM routines and then processed with GIFBUILDER 0.3 (a program of Yves Piguet. It is downloadable here ) on my Powerbook MAC. Recent versions were done with my Mathematica Package MATHEMATICA GIF movies under UNIX which allows Mathematica directly to export the Gif Movie. Here my Mathematica Package GMT_3.0.m for Gif-Movie exportation with Mathematica 3.0 You might need the gifmerge.tgz package and the netpbm.tgz package.
Beside my Mathematica code for the movies, I used data obtained by Monwhea Jeng (using a C code written during a SURF project at Caltech ). The almost periodic Cellular Automata Movie uses Mathematica CA routines developed together with Bert Hof while doing research on almost periodic CA.
