Mandelbrot and Nature "Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, coastlines are not circles, and bark is not smooth, nor does lightning travel in a straight line.“ Mandelbrot, 1983. The fractal dimension is a geometric description of an image. It has an integer value for topological sets and a non-integer value for fractal sets. Central to fractal geometry is the concept of self-similarity. A fractal is a geometrical or physical structure having an irregular or fragmented shape at all scales of measurement between a greatest and smallest scale such that certain mathematical or physical properties of the structure, as the perimeter of a curve or the flow rate in a porous medium, behave as if the dimensions of the structure (fractal dimensions) are greater than the spatial dimensions.
