Fractals


Keep reading about fractals every now and then… It is something that fascinates me a lot. Probably because of its symmetry, and colorfulness. Figures with fractional dimensions is what fractal is all about. Some definitions of fractals

A fractal is an object or quantity that displays self-similarity, in a somewhat technical sense, on all scales.

A fractal is “a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole,” a property called self-similarity.

The above figure shows formation of fractals from simple geometrical figures.

One of the simplest fractals is the Koch Snowflake. This is how it is formed

In future posts, i’ll explain how fractals have fractional dimensions and introduce you to more fractals.

Just google up fractals and fractal images and you’ll have a host of exciting fractals.

So what’s this blog about?

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly). Well, we have a lot of questions in mind. we read up stuff, we do some research to find answers to these questions. This is an attempt to publish that little 15-20 minute research.
