How to find a Fractal function from real data?

Speaker: Cristina Serpa (CMAFcIO).

Fractals are beautiful mathematical objects and are everywhere. It is possible and widely known how such objects are constructed mathematically. A fascinating challenge is how can a fractal pattern be mathematically found from real data? Let us remember that a fractal is chaotic, a dynamic system very sensitive to initial conditions. In this seminar I will present a method that I developed to find fractal functions that approximate real data.
