• CARMA COLLOQUIUM
  • Speaker: Prof Michael Barnsley, Mathematical Sciences Institute, Australian National University
  • Title: Theory and Applications of Fractal Transformations
  • Location: Room VG10, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle
  • Time and Date: 4:00 pm, Thu, 10th Jun 2010
  • Prof Michael Barnsley, the author of "Fractals Everywhere", will be talking in CARMA's Thursday Colloquium series on iterated function systems.
  • Abstract:

    This talk will introduce fractal transformations and some of their remarkable properties. I will explain the mathematics that sustains them and how to construct them in simple cases. In particular I hope to demonstrate a very recent result, showing how they can be applied to generate convenient mutually-singular measures that enable the storage of multiple images within a single image. The talk will include some beautiful computer graphics.
