5. FAQ:

Q: What is a Rauzy fractal? A: A Rauzy fractal is a type of fractal pattern generated using a recursive algorithm based on a substitution sequence, known as the Rauzy substitution sequence. It exhibits self-similarity and intricate geometric patterns.

Q: Can I adjust the level of detail in the fractal? A: Yes, you can adjust the "Number of Iterations" parameter to control the level of detail and complexity in the generated fractal.

Q: How do I interpret the symbols in the fractal? A: Each symbol in the fractal corresponds to a line segment, with different symbols representing different transformations (e.g., translation, rotation). You can observe how the patterns evolve as the sequence is iteratively transformed.

Q: Is there a limit to the number of iterations I can use? A: The tool allows you to specify the number of iterations based on your preferences. However, using a very high number of iterations may result in longer processing times and more intricate fractal patterns.
