The Babylonians to Newton to Mandelbrot

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This talk will trace mathematics begun in Babylonian times, advanced by Newton and culminating in the fractal geometry of Mandelbrot. I am giving this talk in memory of Rick Parris whose fractal geometry class I was fortunate to take several years ago at this conference.
