My talk will be opening your eyes to the world of Fractals. Fractals are basically an intriguing way to look at the world and many different forms throughout the natural world. They have two main properties; self-similarity and fractional dimension. Both of which will be described in detail during my talk. Just to tempt you to attend I attached this awesome picture of one example of a fractal in nature which is a zoomed in picture of broccoli.

Hi, everyone is invited to this, the first of the MathSeminar long talks this spring.

3pm-4pm in Old Main Room 301

Cory’s talk was very interesting and a topic that I have not heard much about. It opened my eyes to very cool things about fractals and I didn’t realize how much fractals are present in everyday life. Great talk Cory!

Cory’s talk was extremely interesting. I loved seeing some of the mathematics that evolution has been taking advantage of for billions of years.

I thought Corey gave a great presentation on fractals. I wrote a paper on fractals for my honors math literature course and have been interested in them ever since. Corey’s talk presented all areas of fractals, both in their formal mathematics and application within nature. Self-similarity and fractal dimensions are sort of fun characteristics of fractals and Corey did an excellent job presenting them!

I think that Corey’s talk was extremely well done. Not only was the topic fascinating, but he is an excellent presenter. You could tell that he knew exactly what he was talking about and was very knowledgeable on Fractals. I didn’t know much at all about what fractals even were, but it’s so awesome to see how they can be found all over the world and throughout nature. I was very impressed with this talk, well done!
