Everyone who has spent more than a few minutes doodling in class knows what the Sierpinski triangle. What they might not know, however, is that this fractal has zero area and infinite "perimeter".

What you see here is quite simple: a point is chosen at random, and then one of three things happens: it gets shrunken down into a square on the bottom left, it gets shrunken down into a square on the bottom right, or it get shrunken down
into a square on the top (imagine a very crude pyramid made of three blocks within a larger block). Amazingly enough, that makes the Sierpinski triangle.

The Lorenz Attractor

The Lorenz attractor was initially designed as a toy weather model; one so simple that there was no guarantee that it had anything to do with the weather. For example, this model makes the assumption that all weather is the same at all
places (more or less).

Still, however, with this simplistic model, the initial sensitivity on initial conditions, and a new kind of science was born. People are still instriguied to watch the attractor go around and around.
