Description:

Abstract:
In this talk, we will discuss the notion of fractional dimension.  It is fascinating to know that there exists geometric objects with a dimension which is not a whole number.  Most fractals enjoy this property!  As an illustration, we will analyze some of the interesting self-similar fractals such as the Sierpinski gasket and the Koch curve.
We hope to see you there!
