**Computer visualization**

Just by varying the parameters \\(\alpha\\) and \\(\beta\\), Xia shows that the algorithm produces a variety of natural looking leaves.

In figure 3, when \\(\alpha = 0.68\\) and \\(\beta = 0.38\\), a leaf is produced which looks remarkably like an actual maple leaf, which is shown next to the computer generated image.

In figure 4, when \\(\alpha = 0.66\\) and \\(\beta = 0.7\\), a leaf is produced which closely matches an actual mulberry leaf.
