The Gasket of Circles: A Fractal of Circular Nature
Haggar, Fred; Kricic, Senida
Australian Senior Mathematics Journal, v31 n2 p22-30 2017
Subdividing an equilateral triangle into four congruent triangles, then doing likewise to each of the three non-central triangles, and then again and again, leads to the Sierpinski gasket, from which the chaos game originated. An analogous procedure is hereforth applied to a circle, where a subdivision consists of two pairs of inscribed circles, with each circle tangential to the ones adjacent to it.
