Module content and teaching

Principal aims

"The main focus of the module will be the mathematical theory behind fractals, such as the definition and properties of the Hausdorff dimension, which is a number quantifying how ""rough"" the fractal is and which reduces to the usual dimension when applied to Euclidean space. However, more recent developments will be included, such as iterated function systems (used for image compression) where we study how a fractal is approximated by other compact subsets. "
