ABSTRACT
<p>Two methods are presented for generating Koch curves, analogous to the commonly used iterative methods for producing images of Julia sets. The attractive method is based on a characterization of Koch curves as the smallest nonempty sets closed with respect to a union of similarities on the plane. The repelling method is in principle dual to the attractive one but involves a nontrivial problem of selecting the appropriate transformation to be applied at each iteration step. Both methods are illustrated with a number of computergenerated images. The mathematical presentation emphasizes the relationship between Koch construction and formal languages theory.</p>
