Abstract : The paper gives a study on the theory and production of fractals. It focuses on three areas in which fractals appear-dynamical systems, scaling, and random motion. In the section on dynamical systems, the dynamics of functions of one complex variable are discussed. The section on scaling includes a discussion of seed fractals, as well as a discussion of fractional dimension. The section on random motion is a discussion of squig fractals. In each section, sample images and computer code/pseudocode are provided. The paper concludes with application of fractals to digital signal processing.
