Chaos Theory and Fractals

Chaos, Fractals, and Arcadia - http://math.bu.edu/DYSYS/arcadia/
"An interactive paper describing some of the mathematical ideas behind Tom Stoppard's wonderful play, Arcadia, including how young Thomasina, then sixteen years old, discovered back in 1800 the equations for images from nature such as fractal ferns (as shown unfolding on the left) as well as the basic principles of chaotic dynamics. And how, 200 years later, the mathematical biologist Valentine finally uncovered Thomasina's amazing discoveries."
