  11. What is a Fractal? - Alan Beck; Glyphs
    The word "fractal" was coined less than twenty years ago by Benoit Mandelbrot, whose work, The Fractal Geometry of Nature, first introduced and explained concepts underlying this new vision. Mandelbrot derived the term "fractal" from the Latin verb frangere, meaning to break or fragment. Basically, a fractal is any pattern that reveals greater complexity as it is enlarged. Thus, fractals graphically portray the notion of "worlds within worlds" which has obsessed Western culture from its tenth-century beginnings. General information about Mandelbrot, fractals, and their computer generation. Images of several fractals, including LarvasLeaf, Serpentes, and Lamp. Part of the Fractal Galleries provided by Glyphs, a site about writing, art, music, and pop culture. more>>
