Harbor seal underwater, Phoca vitulina richardsi, La Jolla, California Guadalupe fur seal, Islas San Benito, Arctocephalus townsendi, San Benito Islands (Islas San Benito) The Mandelbrot Fractal.  Fractals are complex geometric shapes that exhibit repeating patterns typified by self-similarity, or the tendency for the details of a shape to appear similar to the shape itself.  Often these shapes resemble patterns occurring naturally in the physical world, such as spiraling leaves, seemingly random coastlines, erosion and liquid waves.  Fractals are generated through surprisingly simple underlying mathematical expressions, producing subtle and surprising patterns.  The basic iterative expression for the Mandelbrot set is z = z-squared + c, operating in the complex (real, imaginary) number set, Mandelbrot set
