What the Heck is a Fractal?

A fractal is a “repeating pattern in an infinite series” or another way to describe it? Fractals are typically self-similar patterns, where self-similar means they are “the same from near as from far” (from Gouyet, Jean-François (1996). Physics and fractal structures. Paris/New York: Masson Springer. ISBN 978-0-387-94153-0.)

Really? They’re cool patterns. And as you delve into looking at the patterns, you find they repeat themselves. On every scale.

Enjoy! It may help describe what a fractal really is.
