The Fibonacci Word fractal

Abstract : The Fibonacci Word Fractal is a self-similar fractal curve based on the Fibonacci word through a simple and interesting drawing rule. This fractal reveals three types of patterns and a great number of self-similarities. We show a strong link with the Fibonacci numbers, prove several properties and conjecture others, we calculate its Hausdorff Dimension. Among various modes of construction, we define a word over a 3-letter alphabet that can generate a whole family of curves converging to the Fibonacci Word Fractal. We investigate the sturmian words that produce variants of such a pattern. We describe an interesting dynamical process that, also, creates that pattern. Finally, we generalize to any angle.
