Why Fractals Are So Beautiful

Math, Stats, Metrics

Mathematicians agree that we’ve only just begun to scratch the surface of understanding fractal geometry. You don’t have to look hard to notice aspects of nature that clearly don’t fit the Euclidean framework. Rivers, mountains, coastlines, lightning, our circulatory system: Where’s the symmetry and structure? Where’s the order? The answer, as mathematicians are discovering more and more […]
