In mathematics, an Apollonian gasket or Apollonian net is a fractal generated from triples of circles, where each circle is tangent to the other two. It is named after Greek mathematicianApollonius of Perga.
An example of a simple Apollonian Gasket:
By viewing the example, it may be simple to deduce the construction of an Apollonian Gasket, however, instructions can be found here in this wonderful Vihart video. Have fun creating your own Apollonian Gaskets!
There’s another fractal hiding in one of these gaskets. Can you spot it?
