We present in this document the
technology Real Fractals. Real Fractal technology allows, for first time in
modern computing history, explicit design of Fractals in 2D vector design
environment. The technology was developed using Arabic Calligrapher vector
graphic platform. It is not yet available for commercial use. This technology
was invented by Rami Kanhouche PhD in mathematics,
in continuity with the great history of Islamic art. Samples are also
presented.

First time ever a real fractal designed by a fractal design system

Historic
Introduction
The ideas behind Real Fractal technology were developed
throughout many years. First prophetic insights started by the realisation, in
the year 2000, of a Font system for modelling Arabic calligraphy. In this early
stage, a graphical object referral system was developed that allowed the use of
the same graphical object in different locations. Referral system allowed also
nested referral. This was necessary to respect consistency in Font letters
sharing common graphical parts. Arabic Calligrapher 1.0 was released in the
year 2006 with relative commercial success. Still, in comparison with handmade
calligraphy, Arabic Calligrapher 1.0 Font system did not have the necessary
development level to model accurately handmade calligraphy.
Recently, the research in the domain of Arabic calligraphy
was further developed with the presentation of the Third Generation
Font system. This Font system allowed, for first time, an accurate
modelling of Arabic calligraphy.
During the development of Third Generation Font system, the
referral system in Arabic Calligrapher platform was further developed to allow
recursive constructions. By that, it became fully functional system for
designing Fractals.
Why Real Fractals?
There are actually, many systems for Fractal design using predefined
system of equations for fractal generation. We called our technology Real
Fractals because it produces real fractals without limitation to some
predefined equations set. There is no limitation or enforcement of a predefined
structure for the fractal. Hence, there are really an infinite number of
fractals to produce and not few set of equations. Also, the design is made
using the graphical design environment of Arabic Calligrapher software. So it
represents a true system for Fractal design as any design that made in
computerized environment.
Samples
In here we present some samples of Real Fractals. There are
also many samples included in Islamic Art library in the software Arabic
Calligrapher 2.0.

Is this technology
available for commercial use?
Real Fractal is not yet available for commercial use. It is very
possible that the technology will be available as a service in the near future.
Conclusion
Decoding the artistic philosophy of Islamic artists throughout hundreds of years was nothing but fruitful in opening the way for new innovative technologies. Having to provide computer artist with more advanced technique in reproducing ancient scripts and art was the key to the creation of the Real Fractal technology.
