Abstract-- The chaos game, in which a moving point is
repeatedly averaged toward randomly selected vertices of a
triangle, is one method of generating the fractal called the
Sierpinski triangle. The sequence of vertices, called generators,
used to reach a given point of the Sierpinski triangle yields a
map from strings over a three-character alphabet to points in
the plane. This study generalizes that representation to give a
character-string representation for points in Rn
. This is a novel
