It is a property of widespread scientific importance and is at the centre of much of the recent work in chaos, fractals, and other areas of current research and popular interest. Self-similarity is related to svmmetry and is... Read More »

This international bestseller, which foreshadowed a market crash, explains why it could happen again if we don’t act now. Fractal geometry is the mathematics of roughness: how to reduce the outline of a jagged leaf or static in a computer connection to a few simple mathematical properties. With his fractal tools, Mandelbrot has got to... Read More »
