Fractals in Nature

Fractal Patterns Seen in Semiconductor Magnetism Fractal Patterns Seen in Semiconductor Magnetism

Fractal patterns have been observed for the first time at the quantum scale, and the implications – and applications – may be huge. Image: Roushan/Yazdani Research Group Mathematicians and physicists have known for some time that the equations that govern the magnetic phase-transition of metals will produce fractal patterns when iterated... [Read more of this review]

Tomorrow’s weather: Cloudy, with a chance of fractals Tomorrow’s weather: Cloudy, with a chance of fractals

A fascinating article about fractal geometry applied to weather forecasting. An 80 year-old idea – vindicated by modern data collection and analysis – suggests weather may be much simpler than it seems. What does this imply for the accuracy of future weather forecasting? Will we ever be able to outwit the famed Butterfly Effect? We’ll... [Read more of this review]

Fractal Globules in DNA Fractal Globules in DNA

Researchers have discovered how the DNA is packed into our cells in such a way that the roughly 2 meters of DNA in each cell doesn’t tangle, and is easily accessible when it’s needed to make proteins. And the key is: Fractal Geometry! ‘…Researchers found that the genome has a highly organized structure. Small pieces of DNA fold... [Read more of this review]

Fractals on the Earth Fractals on the Earth

Our planet is full of fractals. Mountain ranges are a beautiful example of fractals. You can find these kinds of patterns in the Rockies, the Andes, the Alps and the Himalayas. You can discover countless examples of fractals yourself with the amazing and free Google Earth program. Zoom into the natural fractals on Earth!
