Fractals: the maths and the beauty

The November talk will be given by mathematician Emma Bowley.

In maths, a fractal is often a shape or pattern that has the property of self-similarity. This means the same structures can be seen at multiple scales (like snowflakes). These fascinating structures have lots of interesting properties in mathematics, but also in the real world. In this talk Emma will show the maths that defines these interesting structures and how understanding fractals can help us understand real structures and processes.

Emma is a Chartered Mathematician who is a member of the council of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA).
