The Recursive Turtle

  • Stan Wagon


A space-filling curve is a continuous function P from the unit interval onto the square. The upper images show approximations to the image of P in the square. Further approximations would yield a fully black square. The three-dimensional image shows the true graph of the function: the subset of ℝ3 given by {(t, x, y): P(t) = (x, y)}.
