What Is a Fractal?
In the language of mathematics, a fractal structure is a set with the property of self-similarity. In other words, each member of the set is an exact or approximate copy of a part of itself. One of the simplest examples to help us understand fractals is a Koch snowflake. Let’s build one first for ourselves:
- Draw an equilateral triangle.
- On each side of the triangle, draw more equilateral triangles.
- On each side of the smaller triangles, draw even more triangles, and so on.
