For more information on the history of the subject of chaos, consult [G]. Some of the mathematical and biological underpinnings of the subject may be found in [D] or [May]. Fractals are described in [B], [Man], or [PR]. Some other Java applets dealing with the chaos game may be found at the Dynamical Systems and Technology Project at Boston University website.
