Chaos, fractals and weird things

There are two new scientific concepts: Fractals and chaos. They have been applied in fields like math, biology, medicine, economics, linguistics and astronomy among others. The knowledge we have about them have improved due to these new ideas. Benoit Mandelbrot started a new investigation line which main object of interest are the fractals. An object which preserves the same structure while changing the viewing scale indefinitely is called fractal, for instance, an equilateral triangle which its sides are divided by 3 and the remaining central spaces are filled with two more lines to complete 3 more equilateral triangles. Mandelbrot states that there are countless examples of fractals in the Nature. The Euclidean geometry teaches that there is a relation between the area of a polygon and its perimeter, or between the volume and the area of the surface that surrounds it. However, this is not true for fractals, even if they are derivative from Euclidean polygons. In economics there is a comparable behavior in the change of the value of merchandise with fractals because varying the scale of time presents similar structures. The point about fractals is the difference they have against the regular polygons. The Euclidean geometry gives an integer number of dimensions to the figures, while fractals have fractional ones. This is useful to measure not very well defined features without the problem of the scale. The chaos theory is useful in a similar way that fractals are. They help to understand phenomena which is not satisfactorily described through the current approach. It is important to explain the phenomena that occur in our environment, which used a series of tools that facilitate this task. For example the book speaks about the concept of self-similarity: The concept of the self-similarity leads to the prediction of the existence of a new phase of matter 'quasi-crystals'. Matter is our about forming different phases: the soda, the liquid and the solid. In the gas phase, atoms or molecules move and rotate completely at random. This gives as result that the gas does not have any structure.

. which makes that a number of phenomena that can make our lives a little occur more simple. physics. absolutely all had a minimum knowledge of everything that surrounds us. where no doubt take us to check everyday situations from which many never taken the time to analyze the why happen. We also tells stories of celebrities featured in the field of mathematics. Seems very relevant that there is an example on the topic of chaos concerning the population. Further topics are related to all areas of study. since really have control of how many people there are in the world is a very complicated issue. In my career of economy. resulting in a crystal. fractals and rare things. but not the real life already that many situations are living in today's Econometrics are political decisions where there is not taking into account the topics covered in this book. In an important case the atoms are located at random or disordered in other solids. The relationship between the book chaos. What you try to do since the economy is . knowing that behind it all. It is important to know. is giving guidelines to analyze a number of phenomena not loans to which attention in our daily lives and that are there and surround us. it is important to have a broad view about many issues that are related to mathematics.In a liquid the atoms are also cluttered. in order to understand and be able to explain many of issues and procedures that arise in the general field and what is related to the matter.. the number of elements that are taken in order to explain the chaos. where infinite sizes of things you can take. algebra. there are always a physical phenomenon that explains it. etc. Relation to the theme of fractals it may be mentioned that they help to see things from another dimension and from another perspective. it is a real mess. but this text helps us to see things from another dimension. is incredible. not just for those studying careers related to math or physics. People that they spent much of their lives trying to analyze a number of things that now are very helpful for humanity. atoms are forming regular networks. since it tells us that any form or figure has the option to grow in volume and therefore in area. fractals and things rare with calculus Integral stuff. physics. that certainly never cease to happen. Several possibilities are given in a solid. imagine that they wanted to all. As integral calculus student. I dare say that no doubt the content of the book help us explain many phenomena that are the subject of intense analysis but more in the theoretical sense with econometric models. and with the knowledge that I have acquired so far..

if there will be inflation. with what every human being decides to do in his life and with his life. because in economics happens. everything in this world has a direct relationship with the people. if the Outlook is encouraging. or on the contrary. phenomena. The phrase that he reads the book "One of the greatest goals of science is to be able to predict phenomena". with the discoveries. if the GDP will grow. and I totally agree with this. . if unemployment is to be. Finally. it is important to predict what will happen with the world economy in a certain number of years.looking level grow mortality and birth rates in order to make projections of the standards of living of the present and the future.
