Hi group, I am attempting to implement Arnold's Cat Map using Mathematica and have received two excellent solutions. These are shown below. ------------------------------------------------------------------- Soluton 1: A=(Table[{20,y},{y,20,80}]~Join~Table[{x,20},{x,20,80}])/101; T[{x_,y_}]:=Mod[{x+y,x+2*y},1] MFold[A_,T_,i_]:=Fold[Map[T,#]&,A,Table[A,{i}]] Image[A_,i_]:=\ Show[Graphics[{PointSize[1/30],Text[i,{.95,.95},{1,0}],Map[Point,A]}], AspectRatio->1,PlotRange->{{0,1},{0,1}},Frame->True,FrameTicks->None] Table[Image[MFold[A,T,i],i],{i,0,25}] ------------------------------------------------------------------- Solution 2: PointQ[p_] := VectorQ[p, NumberQ] && Length[p] == 2; m = {{1,1}, {1,2}}; cat[x_?PointQ] := Mod[m.x, 1]; cat2[x_, 0] := x cat[x_, 1] := cat[x] cat2[x_, n_] := cat[cat2[x, n-1]] cat2[{27/76, 58/76}, 9] \!\({27\/76, 29\/38}\) period[x_] := Module[{i=2}, While[Nest[cat,x, i]=!= x, i++]; i] period[{3/101, 6/101}] 25 period[{27/76, 58/76}] 9 catgraph[r_, n_] := Module[{line, line2}, line = Table[{i, i}/r,{i, 0, r-1}]; line2 = Apply[Point[{#1, #2}]&, line, 1]; Show[Graphics[line2/.x_?PointQ :> cat2[x, n]], Frame->True, AspectRatio->Automatic ] ] Table[catgraph[101,i],{i,0,25}] --------------------------------------------------------------------- I would like one iteration more which allows me to implement this solution using any color image. I would especially like to use a color image of a cat. There is a great cat image in the new MMA v 3.0 manual. Can someone proficient with handling images help here? Also, does anyone know if the Arnold's Cat Map transformation is applicable in n-dimensions, particurlarly in three dimensions as this should be producable graphically using MMA v 3.0. I would like to thank individuals who have provided the solutions shown above. Both have very nice features and are very efficient. Thank you to anyone in the group who can provide help.
