Fractals and Chaos: Consequences of Living in a Non-Linear, Iterative World
"Chaos" and "fractals" are two terms signaling a scientific revolution that has taken place in the last 20 years. In this talk, NASA researcher Warren Wiscombe explains how ordinary objects and events such as snowflakes and snowboarding exhibit the characteristics of chaos. Additionally, Wiscombe describes how chaos and fractal theory can shed new light on long-standing scientific conundrums such as weather and climate, fluid flows, cells, and life itself.
