Title of Talk: Polynomiography as Voronoi Art
Polynomiography is the fine art and science of algorithmic visualization in solving a polynomial equation through iteration functions. Voronoi diagrams and their computations arise in many applications and they have also given rise to a source of algorithmic computer art. Polynomiography techniques in particular give rise to infinitely many algorithms for the visualization of approximate Voronoi diagrams of points in the Euclidean plane – given explicitly via their coordinates, or implicitly via a polynomial equation. Additionally, polynomiography offers many fractal images in its approximation of Voronoi diagrams inherent in iteration functions. Polynomiography thus gives rise to a very rich yet unique source of Voronoi art. This talk presents some such polynomiography artwork.
