 The fractal nature of iterated ln(x) [Bandwidth warning: lots of images!] jaydfox Long Time Fellow Posts: 440 Threads: 31 Joined: Aug 2007 09/07/2007, 06:42 PM (This post was last modified: 09/07/2007, 07:00 PM by jaydfox.) The following graphs show successive iterations of the natural logarithm of the real unit interval (0, 1). The first graph shows the second iteration, which returns a straight line with endpoints $+\infty + \pi i, -\infty + \pi i$.     The second graph shows the third iteration, which is a sort of trigonometric curve (real part is logarithm of cosecant, I think) with endpoints at $+\infty, \infty + \pi i$.     The iterations after that don't have as symmetric a structure. But they sure are fascinating. Here's the fourth iteration (leaving the previous iterations in place for reference):     Please note that all the successive iterations after the third will snake between the previous and next iterations to reach endpoints at positive infinity. Here's the fifth and sixth iterations:         ~ Jay Daniel Fox « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
