Mathematics E-320:Pythagorean Tree
Instructor: Oliver Knill
Office: SciCtr 434



This animation shows The Tree of Pythagoras, also called Pythagorean tree.

Wikipedia knows that the Pythagoras tree was constructed by Albert E. Bosman (1891-1961) a Dutch math teacher, in 1942. Its shape inspires fractal antennas. The background music is from the song "1001 nights" by "Crazy Frog" (who also did the Popcorn song).
