Caption: Fractal geometry. "Edge of Universe", a fractal landscape derived from the Julia Set. This depicts a strange, alien world with two highly patterned moons in the sky, set against a background of stars. The Julia Set was invented and studied by the French mathematicians Gaston Julia and Pierre Fatou. Each point is plotted from complex number coordinates, and colours assigned depending upon the point's behaviour under a sequence of repeated but simple operations. Fractal geometry is used in the study of non-linear (or chaotic) mathematical systems, in fields as diverse as fluid turbulence and stock market prices.
