Geek of the Week: Robert Devaney
Last Friday I attended the Spring MATYCONN meeting with my infamous colleague Sue. I was treated to a really excellent tour of the Mandelbrot set by BU prof Robert Devaney. Where most presentations of fractals seem to die in the pictoral realm, Devaney gave the necessary background to appreciate the pictures and inner patterns of the set. He also had some cool visualizations. He's got some of them posted on his homepage.
