A fractal is a repetitive pattern that reveals a similar pattern when it is enlarged. Fractal patterns can be seen in nature – in plants, growth patterns of leaves, spiral shells, river beds, blood vessels, galaxies and more.
The word “fractal” was coined by Mandelbrot in 1975. A fractal pattern explained as a mathematical concept, is a pattern that repeats itself like a recursive formula. Fractal patterns are modeled using fractal generating software.
