The Mandelbrot set – someone has called it the thumbprint of God – is one of the most beautiful and amazing discoveries in the history of mathematics.

With Arthur C. Clarke as narrator and interviews with a number of notable mathematicians, including Benoît Mandelbrot, this program graphically illustrates how simple formulas can lead to complicated results: it explains the set, which means, its internal consistency, and revolutions in thought as a result of discovery. Asked if the real universe is forever, Stephen Hawking defines its limit of smallness, the Mandelbrot set, however, can go on forever.

The invention of the silicon chip in the 1970′s caused a revolution in computers and communications and therefore changed our way of life. Now we are seeing a new revolution that will change our view of the universe and give us a better understanding of their “work.

This film will explore the fractal universe and in our journey of discovery, which will be facilitated by: Professor Ian Stewart, Mathematics Institute of Warwick University, author of over 100 published scientific papers, Dr. Michael Barnsley , a former professor of mathematics at the Georgia Institute of Technology have received a government grant of $ 2.5 million in 1991 to develop a fractal image compression.
