Hunting the Hidden Dimension – Documentary on Fractals

April 2, 2009

“They’re odd-looking shapes you may never have heard of, but they’re everywhere around you—the jagged repeating forms called fractals. If you know what to look for, you can find them in the clouds, in mountains, even inside the human body.”

Check out this documentary about fractals and the Mandelbrot set from Nova:  http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/fractals/ .  It’s Fractals 101 &  highlights some of the resulting technology and understanding gained by modern fractal mathematics.

A must see for all fractal enthusiasts and those interested by seemingly universal truths and patterns.
