Diagram: Fractals



This is a default subtitle for this page.

The Sierpinski Fractal shown here is a nice example of a scale-free/power law system. At each level of zoom we encounter the same pattern. Such self-similar structures follow power-law distributions of their components:  that is to say, a few elements within the overall pattern are very large, but there are many more elements within the structure that become vanishingly small. While Fractals are certainly visually striking on their own, such topological regularities in complex systems are significant not only due to their inherent beauty , but because of the dynamics at work which generate such pattern.
