Fractals-Just love 'em


What is a fractal?  A fractal is a geometric figure, each part of which has the same statistical character as the whole. A fractal can be split into parts, each of which is a reduced-size copy of the whole. Think of a tree and its branches or a snowflake.  Check out these Buddha Fractals, Wave Fractals and a Fractal Fractal.  They are easy to make at any of the free online fractal generators. Try it yourself!
