Steven H Strogatz, 1994. Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos: with applications to Physics, Biology, Chemistry and Engineering (Addison-Wesley).

Fractals

- Term coined by Mandelbrot in 1975 and was derived from the Latin fractus meaning "broken" or "fractured.“
- Self-similarity, i.e. look the same at different magnifications
- Mathematics: A fractal is based on an iterative equation
- Mandelbrot set
- Julia Set
- Fractal fern leaf
- Approx. natural examples
- clouds, mountain ranges, lightning bolts, coastlines, snow flakes, cauliflower, broccoli, blood vessels...

Netlogo: Mandelbrot

Koch Snowflake- With every iteration, the perimeter of this shape increases by one third of the previous length.
- The Koch snowflake is the result of an infinite number of these iterations, and has an infinite length, while its area remains finite.
