# Hausdorff tree

## World's simplest fractal tool

This utility lets you draw colorful and unique Hausdorff fractals. You can control the drawing process through a number of easy to adjust parameters. You can set the order of the H-fractal, which changes the number of letters H, adjust the dimensions of the space, and set the drawing orientation for the initial H character (either vertical or horizontal). You can also select any color for the H letter and background. Fun fact – the H-fractal is a fractal canopy that fills the entire space with an exception of a couple of points that it can never reach. Fractabulous!

Hausdorff tree tool
What is a hausdorff tree?

This online browser-based tool allows you to create a personalized Hausdorff fractal tree. This fractal is also known as an H-curve as it's entirely made out of many connected copies of the initial letter of Felix Hausdorff's surname. Modern literature often calls this fractal simply an H-tree and even a T-branching fractal, as the letter H can be created from two rotated T letters branching to the left and right. At the first iteration stage, the fractal is just a single letter H (or two T letters). At the second iteration step, four more H letters (each smaller by a factor of √2) are added to every vertex of the original H letter. At the third step, another sixteen smaller H letters are added, and so on. It is easy to see that the number of letters H (denoted by H

_{n}) at the n-th iteration stage is calculated by the formula H_{n}= ∑4^{m}(where m ranges from 0 to n-1). For example, at the 3rd iteration stage there are H_{n}= 4⁰ + 4¹ + 4² = 1 + 4 + 16 = 21 letters H. The number of letters H can also be determined by the recursive formula H_{n}= 4×H_{n-1}+ 1. For example, on the 4th iteration stage there are H_{4}= 4×H_{3}+ 1 = 21 * 4 + 1 = 85 letters H. As the fractal's depth increases, the points of the H-curve come arbitrarily close to every point in the space. Mind boggling and awesome at the same time, or as we love to say – fractabulous!

Hausdorff-85

This example illustrates the H-fractal at the fourth iteration stage. As discussed above, there are 4⁰ + 4¹ + 4² + 4³ = 85 H characters. We've adjusted the options so that the H chars are drawn horizontally in a 500x500 space with lagoon-blue line color.

H

_{3}FractalIn this example, we set the recursion depth to only 3 iteration steps, which means that there are 21 letters H (or 42 letters T, if you're creating it from Ts). We use a green-yellow color for the line and deep-sapphire color for the background. We also use 600x600px square canvas with padding of 25px and a line segment width of 10px.

Vertical Hausdorff Tree

In this example, we generate 6 iterations of a vertical Hausdorff tree. We've set the size to 600 by 1000 pixels and chosen the H orientation to be vertical. Let's try to calculate the total number of H letters in this fractal. H₆ = 4⁰ + 4¹ + 4² + 4³ + 4⁴ + 4⁵ = 1 + 4 + 16 + 64 + 256 + 1024 = 1365. Good luck shifting to the 6th gear!
