Paper Abstract

In this paper, we will first briefly review fractal equations, then we will present an algorithm for solving encoding equations of class 2 fractals. The idea is to represent images in terms of blocks in a similar way as JPEG. the DCT in JPEG is replaced by fractal transformation. Image compression ratios for various selections of block size and parameter space will be calculated. Thirdly, we will study the simplest IFS, a 1D IFS with two mappings. We will introduce several new concepts: the base language of fractals and the canonical order of fractals. The cardinality of the base language is derived. How base language is used to infer an IFS is discussed.
