Introduction to Fractals: What is the Mandelbrot Set?
1:00-2:00 pm Add
60 Evans Hall
Perhaps you've heard fractals, those crazy, self-repeating patterns that seem to get even crazier the closer you look at them. This talk will explain the most famous fractal of all: the Mandelbrot Set. You might think this would require lots of advanced mathematics; amazingly, all we'll need is addition, multiplication and a good deal of imagination!
