Abstract

Although the snowflake curve, the boundary of the Koch snowflake, is one of the well-known fractals, there is no iterated function system (IFS) for it in the literature. In this study, we give an IFS for this familiar closed curve.

Keywords

snowflake curve;Koch curve;iterated function system
