Albion College Mathematics and Computer Science Colloquium

Title: Fractals : Hunting The Hidden Dimension
Speaker:NOVA DVD

Abstract: What do movie special effects, the stock market, heart attacks, and the rings of Saturn have in common? They all consist of fractals, irregular repeating shapes that are found in cloud formations and tree limbs, in stalks of broccoli and craggy mountain ranges, and even in the rhythm of the human heart. This video takes viewers on a fascinating quest with a group of pioneering mathematicians determined to decipher the rules that govern fractal geometry.
