What Is a Fractal? | Science & Math - Medium

Fractals have an infinite amount of detail, and some fractals feature motifs that repeat themselves on an increasingly smaller scale. Typically, fractals can be generated by repeatedly applying a particular operation. The term fractal was introduced in 1975 by Benoît Mandelbrot and is derived from the Latin fractus (broken).

ractal mathematics was too popular among scientists in the 1980s — 1990s. Fractals were thought to be recognized everywhere and in everything, and these mathematics was applied inappropriately and inappropriately, so much so that in 2004 fractals are somewhat discredited in science.
