B.B. Mandelbrot in “The Fractal Geometry of Nature” describes fractals as “a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole”. There are many things in nature that exhibit some of these characteristics such as snowflakes, crystals, rivers,and some plant structures.

There are some interesting software programs that generate fractals. Have a look at the video below of one such creation.
