The Mandlebrot Set

"Fractal geometry is not just a chapter of mathematics, but one that helps Everyman to see the same world differently."
Benoit Mandelbrot (1924-2010)

Hello Microdot,
I loved that you have done a posting from my world of science and engineering math!!

Fractal Geometry is an amazing aspect of our world. An example is that a coastal shore line cannot be accurately measured because it will get longer with the smaller the unit that you measure it by. Heady stuff!!
