Fractals & Chaos Recap/Assignment for 9/25

We discussed the article Ants in Labyrinths, then did some more practice with finding dimension of a variety of fractals. Some of the designs were templates, but some of them were “completed” fractals, which prompted us to discuss how to recreate the template from these designs. We have also already observed that the S^d = N definition for dimension may not be sufficient!

We’ll have some more time to work in the lab tomorrow, and for Thursday you should read On Being the Right Size, an essay written by biologist JBS Haldane in 1926.
