Abstract:

Fractal geometry - the revolutionary new branch of mathematics - has changed the way we see the world and opened up a vast new territory to scientific analysis and understanding. NOVA explores the work of Benoit Mandelbrot, who discovered one _of nature''s biggest design secrets - an odd looking, jagged repeating shape, which occurs all over biology and has greatly influenced computer design and CGI imagery. Mysterious and beautiful, fractals have deepened our understanding of nature by _revealing the order in disorder.
