Fri, March 16 2018

Torus_Talks_Banner_Blue_16

Fractal Geometry is a relatively new branch of Mathematics that has greatly benefited from modern computing power in the course of its development. However, the earliest examples of fractals were discovered many decades before the advent of computers.

In this talk, you will learn how the Cantor set, the Koch curve and the Koch snowflake are constructed and these examples will be used to illustrate fundamental fractal concepts such as self-similarity, fractal generators and fractal dimension.
