Hi Alex,

Simplex noise is a faster version of Improved Perlin noise that uses 
tetrahedrons instead of cubes for the noise control points. Because it 
has fewer control points to interpolate for a single output point, it's 
somewhat faster than Improved Perlin. It is similar in quality, though.

Cheers,
M.
