Opinion

From Library Staff

Takes viewers on an amazing quest with a group of pioneering mathematicians determined to decipher the rules that govern fractal geometry. Yes, I know that sounds incredibly dull to many of you. I promise it's not. It is visually stunning and your brain will thank you for it.

If you don't know anything about fractals or the way in which they make the modern world possible (CGI, Cell Phones) this documentary will bring you up to speed. Plus Mandelbrot's story of how he discovered them is also very interesting. Worth watching.
