“Iterated Function Systems and the Inverse Problem”

We introduce iterated function systems, a subset of discrete dynamical systems. A few examples of self similar sets generated by such systems and motivation for the inverse problem of approximation are given. We show some work towards a practical solution of the inverse problem, speci

cally, approximation by moment-matching. Finally, we develop an approach involving iterated function systems with probabilities and place dependent probabilities.
