Fractal Geometry (M835)
In recent years there has been an explosion of interest in the mathematics of fractals - sets whose geometry cannot easily be described in classical terms. There's no simple definition but all fractals have a highly intricate structure. Many fractals contain copies of themselves at many different scales, and computer pictures have shown that such sets (which are often very beautiful) are a very good representation of shapes of natural phenomena such as clouds, mountains and ferns. This module deals with the theory of fractals and their geometry, and looks at examples to which the theory can be applied.
