Square Quilts

Square Quilts are constructed using either a determinstic symmetric dynamical system or a random symmetric dynamical system. In either case, the images shown can be thought of as colored realizations of chaotic symmetric attractors.
There are a total of 12 different types of repeating pattern that can be supported on the square lattice. For determinsitic dynamics, each image is constructed using iteration of an appropriately symmetric torus map. Typically, each such map can be represented as a trigonometric polynomial. We refer to Symmetry in Chaos for more details.
