Mandelbrot fractal. Computer-generated Mandelbrot Set fractal, entitled Searchlight. Fractal geometry derives complex shapes by repeated mathematical operations. The Mandelbrot Set is named after the mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot, and is made from a group of complex numbers plotted by using their real and imaginary parts as co-ordinates. Increasingly high magnifications reveal infinite layers of complexity with repetition of fundamental patterns. Fractal geometry is a branch of chaos mathematics, which is used to model "random" processes such as the weather and stock market prices.
