Fractals In Pictures

Fractals are a curved or geometric figure, each part of which has similar characteristics as the whole. Fractals are useful in modeling structures, like coastlines or snowflakes, in which similar patterns recur at progressively smaller scales, and in describing partly random or chaotic phenomena such as crystal growth, fluid turbulence, and galaxy formation. This feature to fractals is called self-similarity where patterns are repeated across different scales, meaning as we zoom in we will stay finding the same pattern repeated giving them an infinite variety that is created by very simple rules involving iterative functions. In this short video, we explore the extraordinary world of fractals through pictures.
