I like how she simply states that she like(y)s fractal geometry, and then, on a completely different line (which barely makes sense, even given the context), randomly yells "Mandelbrot sets!!!!" with not one, but four exclamation points.
Ah, this is why we love you, CC.
Also, new Mandelbrot set gif I found:
If you want to play around with Mandelbrot sets and other fractal shapes in complex dynamics, there's a neat FREE program you can download that lets you zoom in/out and explore the geometry as much as you like.
I was messing around in Mathematica and produced this (attached) -- red dots are prime numbers and black ones aren't.
I'm not sure if there are legitimate patterns or if it's just my mind playing tricks on me.
But it's still kind of pretty.
That's very cool. And yeah, the spirals look like patterns. Can you change the grid size to see if the patterns persist? (er, sorry, not sure how to phrase it - I never really used Mathematica).
Anyway, to answer the OP, I've probably forgotten most of the maths that I used to know. I mostly use it now as a way to think about things, rather than thinking about the maths concept itself, if that makes sense. I still particularly enjoy thinking about bell curves and probability distribution curves in general.
