Koch Curves: Rewriting System, Geometry and Application

Mamta Rani, Riaz Ul Haq and Norrozila Sulaiman


Problem statement: Recently, new Koch curves have been generated by dividing the initiator into three unequal parts. There is no formal rewriting system to generate such kind of curves. Approach: It is required to measure the new changed geometrical properties. Generalized rewriting systems for the new Koch curves have been developed. Results: New formulas have been given to measure their geometrical properties. Conclusion/Recommendations: The geometrical properties of new Koch curves make them more suitable as antennas in wireless communication than the conventional Koch curve.
