This lecture is focused on the fractals theory. Student will see that the fractals are everywhere. Fractals can be observed in the nature, computer games, in some screen savers or even in the man’s body. The lecture will show some well-known fractals as Julia’s sets or Mandelbrot set. Other examples of fractals which will be discussed are the Sierpinski triangle or Koch snowflake. The lecture will show how the fractals are mathematically defined. Then one algorithm which is often used to create the fractals will be clarified.
