Fractals -- that is, irregular geometric patterns -- are found virtually everywhere, from stalks of broccoli and cauliflower, to jagged mountain peaks. This phenomenon has long been considered beyond traditional mathematical understanding; however, a group of "maverick" mathematicians are determined to discover the mathematical laws that result in these strange patterns. Their findings have the potential for great scientific progress in a variety of areas, particularly in the field of medicine, where an understanding of fractal geometry could lead to improved treatment of cardiovascular illnesses. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
