Fractals: The Colors of Infinity

"What, you ask, was the beginning of it all? And it is this... Existence that multiplied itself for sheer delight of being and plunged into numberless trillions of forms so that it might find itself innumerably." –Sri Aurobindo

The invention of the silicon chip in the 1970's created a revolution in computers and communication and hence transformed our way of life. We are now seeing another revolution which is going to change our view of the universe and give us a better understanding of its working.

This film will explore the fractal universe and on our voyage of discovery, we will be helped by: Professor Ian Stewart of the Mathematics Institute, University of Warwick, an author of over 100 published scientific works; Dr. Michael Barnsley, former professor of mathematics at Georgia Institute of Technology who received a 2.5 million dollar government grant in 1991 to develop a fractal image compression systems; Professor Stephen Hawking, a mathematician and cosmologist, and author of the best selling book 'A Brief History of Time,'; and finally, Dr. Benoît Mandelbrot, whose unorthodox mathematics led to the discovery of the Mandelbrot set and fractal geometry.
