The graphics in this report were produced using specially developed simulation software. Based on Witten and Sander’s research on diffusion-limited aggregation at the beginning of the 1980s [1,2], a growth process is simulated in which individual particles randomly adhere to each other due to Brownian motion and thus form an agglomerate.
This model for the formation of fractal structures is used in many areas of physics and biology, for example in electroplating (electrolytic deposition), crystallization processes, high-voltage discharges, the agglomeration of soot or dust particles and the growth of bacterial colonies.
In the graphics of this report, each particle shown represents a statistically registered person at UAS Technikum Wien. The cover shows the total number of everyone – students as well as employees.
While on the cover, as well as on the colored double pages, there are specific, legible representations, the same graphic instrument is used on the remaining pages to create freer and more abstract graphics.
This report was created in both english and german versions.
