Polynomiography: From the fundamental theorem of Algebra to art

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

45 Scopus citations


The author introduces poly-nomiography, a bridge between the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra and art. Polynomiography provides a tool for artists to create a 2D image - a polynomiograph - based on the computer visualization of a polynomial equation. The image is dependent upon the solutions of a polynomial equation, various interactive coloring schemes driven by iteration functions and several other parameters under the control of the polynomiographer's choice and creativity. Polynomiography software can mask all of the underlying mathematics, offering a tool that, although easy to use, affords the polynomiographer infinite artistic capabilities.
