- Two important properties of a fractal F
- F has detail at every level.
- F is exactly, approximately or statistically self-similar.

- fractals: not just for “showing math”
- triangle subdivision
- vertex displacement
- recursive until termination condition

D = log(N)/log(r) N = measure, r = subdivision scale

Hausdorff dimension: noninteger

- Koch snowflake

D = log(N)/log(r) D = log(4)/log(3) = 1.26

- divide in half
- randomly displace
- scale variance by half
