Riassunto: Fractals are the visual depictions of mathematical equations the same equations, in fact, that describe natural phenomena such as coastlines, plant shapes and weather patterns. A computer program assigns a color to each point in the image based on the answers to a chosen equation, which then results in abstract fractal shapes. Dozens of variables are manipulated in order to create these fascinating images. The Fractal Cosmos wall calendar features the organic designs of Alice Kelley, who says, "Fractals are an intuitive glimpse into the infinite order that composes the natural world, as well as being proof that math is beautiful."
About the Author: Alice Kelley discovered fractals in 1995 and began collecting other peoples fractal images. She was excited by their abstract beauty and the fact that such gorgeous pictures were created by math alone. Since fractals are actually computer versions of natural fractal phenomena like coastlines, plant shapes and weather patterns, they seemed to resonate with her because they do not appear to be artificial. Kelley began making fractals herself a year later and found that she was able to manipulate and color fractal images in an intuitive manner. "Each fractal starts out as chaos, and I find the pattern in it, and that pleases me, she said. Perhaps its a metaphor. So much of life and the universe is chaos, and I can take a tiny part of it and make beauty."
