Minimal Surface

In mathematics, a minimal surface is a surface that locally minimizes its area. This is equivalent to having a mean curvature of zero. The term “minimal surface” is used because these surfaces originally arose as surfaces that minimized total surface area subject to some constraint. Physical models of area-minimizing minimal surfaces can be made by dipping a wire frame into a soap solution, forming a soap film, which is a minimal surface whose boundary is the wire frame. However the term is used for more general surfaces that may self-intersect or do not have constraints.

Fractal Fern
 
This is the Barnsley fern.. It is a mathematical fractal and it is remarkably similar to a living fern. Fractals are self similar and this means that the same pattern repeats on every level of magnification. With mathematical fractals this self similarity can continue infinitely.. in nature it obviously cannot, but in living fern you can still see self similarity.:)Alex @Fathom the UniverseImage created with VisSim
