Bilinear fractal interpolation and box dimension

Barnsley, Michael F.; Massopust, Peter R.


In the context of general iterated function systems (IFSs), we introduce bilinear fractal interpolants as the fixed points of certain Read–Bajraktarevic operators. By exhibiting a generalized “taxi-cab” metric, we show that the graph of a bilinear fractal interpolant is the attractor of an underlying contractive bilinear IFS. We present an explicit formula for the box-counting dimension of the graph of a bilinear fractal interpolant in the case of equally spaced data points.
