Transcript of Untitled Prezi

Many phenomenons can be difficult to analyze using traditional methods, but they can be modeled using fractals e.g. clouds, trees, landscapes, coastlines etc.

About Benoit Mandelbrot
Think about it...
If the solar system rotates around the sun, what does the sun rotate around? The Milky Way Galaxy. What does the Milky Way galaxy rotate around? Wouldn't our galaxy rotate around it's own sun? Then that would repeat the same pattern over and over again meaning we're in a HUGE galaxy and that in another.

Benoit Mandelbrot, (born November 20, 1924, Warsaw, Poland—died October 14, 2010, Cambridge, Massachusetts, U.S.), Polish mathematician universally known as the father of fractals.
He described his father (1883-1952) as "a very scholarly person, and the descendant of long lines of scholars.

It often seemed everyone in the family was—or was expected to become—a scholar of some kind, at least part-time.
He was a research staff member at IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, New York, from 1958 to 1974.
Fractals are infinite patterns and designs that repeat themselves over and over again as of a never ending pattern.
A fractal is a geometric construction that exhibits self-similarity across all scales.
In mathematical terms it does not matter how far you zoom into a fractal image there will be an equivalent level of detail at every stage and are also found in the natural world.
The term 'fractal' was coined by Benoit B. Mandelbrot in 1975 to collectively describe sets that had been previously studied by other mathematicians, but had remained unnamed.
This was essentially the birth of Fractal Geometry. Mandelbrot later asserted that fractals deserve to be called 'geometrically chaotic'.
Mandelbrot derived the word "Fractal" from the Latin word "Fractus" meaning 'broken' or 'irregular'. The term fractal fits quite well, since a fractal is basically an irregular shape that repeats itself.
