Fractals - The Colors of Infinity by Arthur C Clarke

Today on Far Future Horizons we embark on a voyage into the infinite of the distinctly mathematical kind with Arthur C Clarke author of “2001: A Space Odyssey” and inventor of the telecommunications satellite.

Arthur C. Clarke presents this unusual documentary on the mathematical discovery of the Mandelbrot Set (M-Set) and introduces us to the visually stunning and visually spectacular world of fractal geometry. This documentary relates the science of the M-Set to nature in a way that seems to identify the proverbial hand of God in the design of the universe itself. Dr. BenoƮt Mandelbrot in 1980 discovered the infinitely complex geometrical shape called the Mandelbrot Set using a very simple equation with computers and graphics.

So fasten your seat belts and join us on a visually stunning mathematical odyssey into the infinite M-verse.

Fractals - The Colors of Infinity is available from Amazon Books.
