Speakers: Professor George Rowlands (Warwick University)

From both a scientific and an artistic point of view Nature provides us
with some interesting patterns. Some smooth like the spots on a
leopard, to the seemingly random ones such as frost patterns on windows, shapes of trees, coastlines and even the distribution of blood vessels in one’s body. At first glance, and even second glance, they all look complicated, and they are. In recent years their similarity has been revealed and a method proposed which allows their quantitative study.
They are all Fractals. The talk will be about what a fractal is and how one can study these various complicated patterns in a quantitative manner and perhaps see if there is a relationship between the scientific and the artistic views.
Tickets are free but should be reserved before the event by emailing.
