## The Colours of Infinity: The Beauty and Power of FractalsWhen Nigel Lesmoir-Gordon made the groundbreaking TV documentary, The Colours of Infinity about the Mandelbrot Set and fractals - the geometry of roughness, his enthusiasm brought together a dream team of contributors. Sir Arthur C. Clarke presents it. Benoit Mandelbrot, the Belgian mathematician who first coined the term fractal and whose equation, the Mandelbrot Set, would reveal the wonder of fractals when fed into a computer, explains how it began. Professor Michael Barnsley, the computer graphics researcher who developed fractal image compression technology, explains the applications of the breakthroughs. Professor Ian Stewart, author of Does God Play Dice? adds his insights into the beautifully simple equation that gives birth to fractals. the world's founders and leaders of fractal geometry - to describe how fractal thinking has developed - to reflect on the many theoretical, practical, commercial and artistic ways in which fractals have developed since the film was made. They are joined by Dr Gary Flake, Chief Science Officer of Overture Inc, who expounds on the fractal nature of the Web, and Robert Prechter, who demonstrates fractal applications in the movements of the stock markets. fractal animation to the music of Quintessence. |
