Maths Week Exhibition

To celebrate Maths Week 2009 (Oct 10-17) we are displaying a selection of posters, articles and books at the entrance to the main Library focusing on the fascinating science of fractals and fractal images.

Come up, have a look and find out everthing you need to know about the Dragon Curve (right), the Sierpinski Sieve and the Koch snowflake!

Maurice O'Reilly, Head of Mathematics Department has lots of links on his Maths Week webpage here and has written his own article explaining the ideas behind Koch's snowflake.

Our thanks to Maurice for his help in selecting and supplying the items for the exhibition.
