Fractals, Mandelbrot, Pixar (Trek through Math 4/8)

By Lê Nguyên Hoang, Not an Ordinary Seminar – GERAD. March 6th, 2013.

In this talk, I will take you through some of the greatest simple ideas of the 20th century. From operations research to topology, from set theory to graph theory, from fractals to infinity, we will explore different regions of the world of mathematics. While this presentation is primarily aimed at non-mathematicians, it should be of great interest to everyone.

Although highly appreciated by artists, self-reference has been a nightmare for mathematicians. It took one of the greatest, Kurt Gödel, to provide a better understanding of it. This article deals with paradoxes, recursion, fractals and Gödel's incompleteness theorems.
