COMMENTS

This substitution rule dissects the unit square into a central square of side 3/5 and 16 surrounding squares of side 1/5.

What is the limiting shape of the contours (if it exists)?

From Lars Blomberg, Oct 18 2019: (Start)

Let s be the size of a square. The substitution rule is to replace it by one central square (size s*3/5) and sixteen smaller squares around it (size s*1/5).

Start with a single square as generation 0.

For each new generation first substitute the central square, let c be the size of the new central square.

Then substitute all non-central squares with size >= c. Repeat the last step if required. (End)
