3.4 Algorithm description

The main idea behind XaoS is that it is not required to calculate the whole image every frame. Most pixels are already calculated in the previous frames. You usually don't have exactly the pixels you want, but all within a range lower than a step between pixels are acceptable. That is why the image flickers a bit and why points do not blink randomly as in precalculated animations. This document describes some of the most important algorithms in XaoS
