This tool creates images using the gingerbreadman map.
The gingerbreadman map is a discrete dynamic system given by:
x(i+1) = 1 - y(i) + |x(i)|
y(i+1) = x(i)
It exhibits chaotic behaviour.
This tool creates pictures of its orbits. It generates the picture in an infinite loop, refining it with every iteration. Depending on the parameters you choose, it can take seconds, minutes or even hours to get a nice picture.
Play around with parameter a, x and y limits and with initial conditions.
