Caption: Fractal generated wave and dendritic patterns. A fractal is a never-ending pattern. Fractals are infinitely complex patterns that are self-similar across different scales. Some mathematical rule-patterns can mimic patterns in nature including the mathematics of symmetry, waves, meanders, and lightning etc. Fractals are mathematical patterns that are scale invariant. This means that the shape of the pattern does not depend on how closely you look at it. Self-similarity is found in fractals. Other examples of natural fractals are coast lines and tree shapes, which repeat their shape regardless at what magnification you view them.
