Concerning the Great Pyramid
of Khufu, the theory proposed in my essay turns
out to make 22/28 a very logical choice as the inverse-slope for the slant-angle
of the faces. Now I will discuss the
pyramid exercises from the Rhind Papyrus.
This papyrus as well as the other extant mathematical papyri were written
hundreds of years after the 4-th dynasty. One can ask how accurately they
represent the mathematical knowledge of the architect who built the Great
It is obvious that the architects undertaking the building of a
pyramid would need a good mathematical knowledge of
the geometry associated
with such a structure, and one can indeed find this in these later papyri.
Two of the five pyramid exercises from the Rhind papyrus
can be found here.
As these exercises
show, the seked is represented as a certain number of palms
and fingers. This is really the horizontal change in the distance for each change
of one cubit in the vertical distance. The exercises make it clear that
is equal to 7 palms and
that one palm is equal to 4 fingers. Therefore, one cubit
is equal to 28 fingers. (Not so different from the English measurement system in
which one yard is 3 feet and one foot is 12 inches.) Thus, for example,
of five palms, two fingers
would correspond to an inverse-slope of
(22 fingers)/(28 fingers), or 22/28. As I mentioned above, the Great Pyramid
indeed has this seked, and with a high degree of accuracy.
...the famous relationship between &pi and the Great Pyramid of Khufu ...has
its roots in two facts - one purely mathematical and the other historical, but
both involving the
1. The rational number 22/7 happens to be an excellent approximation to the number
Egyptian measurement system involves dividing one unit of measurement(the cubit)
into 7 equal units (palms)
Concerning the first fact, it is actually somewhat remarkable that an irrational
number such as &pi can
be approximated so well by a rational number with a small
denominator. (The denominator is 7 in this case.).
There is also a frequently mentioned relationship between the Great Pyramid and

Khufu intentionally incorporated the Golden
Mean (which is this number φ) into
the proportions of that structure ...https://sites.math.washington.edu/~greenber/PiPyr.html

This ratio is nature's most ubiquitous fractal scaling ratio and is easy to see present in plants,

and air, and many other phenomena of Earth. It is also

some geometrical object with scale invariance such that if
you "zoom in" on the object it
will look the same/similar...a classic fractal such as the Koch Snowflake or
triangle. I do see that Cantor's set would look the same if you kept "zooming in".
If you restrict your sight to [0,13] then the picture
of Cantor's set is exatly the same as it
is in the whole [0,1]. Again, restrict to [0,1/9] and you get the same picture.

human body follows the same
fractal rules that meteorologists have used to describe cloud formation
and the shapes
But Eglash envisioned a different potential for the beautiful
fractal patterns he saw
in the photos from Tanzania: a window into the
world of native cultures.
Eglash had been leafing through an edited collection of research
articles on women and Third World development
when he came across an
article about a group of Tanzanian
women and their loss of autonomy in
village organization. The author blamed the women's plight on a shift
traditional architectural designs to a more rigid modernization
program. In the past, the women had decided where their
houses would go.
But the modernization plan ordered the village structures like a
grid-based Roman army camp, similar
to tract housing.
Eglash was just beginning a doctoral program in the history of
consciousness at the University of California at Santa Cruz. Searching
for a topic that would connect cultural issues
like race, class and
gender with technology, Eglash was intrigued by what he read and asked
the researcher to
send him pictures of the village.
detecting the surprising fractal patterns, Eglash began going
to museums and libraries to study aerial photographs
from other cultures
around the world.
"My assumption was that all indigenous
architecture would be more
fractal," he said. "My reasoning was that all indigenous architecture
to be organized from the bottom up." This bottom-up, or
self-organized, plan contrasts with a top-down, or hierarchical,
which only a few people decide where all the houses will go.
"As it turns out, though, my reasoning was wrong," he said. "For
if you look at Native American architecture, you do not see
fractals. In fact, they're quite rare." Instead, Native
architecture is based on a combination of circular and square symmetry,
Pueblo Bonito, an ancient ruin in northwestern New Mexico built by
the Anasazi people, consists of a big circular shape
made of connected
squares. This architectural design theme is repeated in Native American
pottery, weaving and
even folklore, said Eglash.
When Eglash looked elsewhere in the world, he saw different
design themes being used by native cultures. But he found
widespread use of fractal geometry only in Africa and southern India,
leading him to conclude that fractals
weren't a universal design theme.
Focusing on Africa, he sought to answer what property of fractals
made them so widespread in the culture.
"widespread use of fractal geometry only in
Africa and southern India". Southern India
is where the concept of zero (used in numerical computing) came from along
with "arabic numerals' and
the decimal system.
Eglash expanded on his work in
Africa after he won a Fulbright Grant in 1993.
central and western Africa, going as far north as the
Sahel, the area just south of the Sahara Desert, and as far south
equator. He visited seven countries in all.
"Basically I just toured around looking for fractals, and when I
found something that had a scaling
geometry, I would ask the folks what
was going on-why they had made it that way," he said.
In many cases,
however, Eglash found that step-by-step mathematical procedures
were producing these designs, many of them surprisingly sophisticated.
Eglash realized that many
fractal designs he was seeing were consciously
created. "I began to
understand that this is a knowledge system, perhaps not as formal as
fractal geometry but just as much a conscious use of those same
geometric concepts," he said. "As we say in California, it blew my
mind." In Senegal, Eglash learned about
a fortune-telling system that
relies on a mathematical operation reminiscent of error checks on
In traditional Bamana
fortune-telling ...The mathematical operation is called addition modulo 2,
which simply gives the remainder after
division by two. But in this case, the two
"words" produced by the priest, each consisting of four odd or
strokes, become the input for a new round of addition modulo 2. In other
words, it's a pseudo random-number generator, the same thing computers
do when they produce random
numbers. It's also a numerical feedback
loop, just as fractals are generated by a geometric feedback loop.
"Here is this absolutely astonishing numerical feedback loop, which is indigenous,"

amazing how he was able to pull things out of the culture and fit them into mathematics
developed in the West,"
Shirley said. "He really did see a lot of interesting new mathematics
that others had missed." Eglash said
the fractal design themes reveal that traditional African
mathematics may be much more complicated than previously
thought. Now an assistant professor of
science and technology studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy,
Eglash has written
about the revelation in a new book, "African Fractals: Modern Computing and Indigenous Design."
Recent mathematical developments like fractal geometry
represented the top of the ladder in most
western thinking, he said. "But it's much more useful
to think about the development of
mathematics as a kind of branching structure and that what blossomed very late on
branches might have bloomed much earlier on the limbs of others.
"When Europeans first came to Africa, they considered the architecture very disorganized and
It never occurred to them that the Africans might have been using a form of
mathematics that they hadn't even discovered
yet." Eglash said educators also need to rethink
the way in which disciplines like African studies
have tended to skip over mathematics and

math teachers in the
United States on ways to get minorities more interested
in the subject.

numeric systems in Africa:
Players in Ghana use the
term "marching group" for a self-replicating pattern,
such as the example
below. Here the number of counters in a series of cups each
decrease by one (e.g. 4-3-2-1).
As simple as it seems,
this concept of a self replicating pattern is at the heart of some
sophisticated mathematical concepts.
The valid question arises, in what ways can an
understanding of African
mathematical representations, fractals, complexity and chaos in indigenous cultural
practices assist us in theorizing about the future?
In our opinion, probably,the greatest point that can be taken away from our
Eglash (1999) into African mathematics is an appreciation of
African indigenous creativity
and quantitative ability. As Hull (1976) noted, large
urban centers were disregarded
by the colonialists because they did not utilize
typology. The complex fractal nature of these settlements went unappreciated.
is crucial in any discussion of possible applications of current research.
The sheer redemptive power of knowledge is at play here. Even today, people living on the
continent may still think of their indigenous past as primitive and non-rational.
of the fractal characteristics of indigenous culture enables an
appreciation of the
complexity of the ‘mundane’ indigenous artifacts. This singular
understanding can act
as a powerful motivator for rethinking modernity.
social political structure of Africans vs the top-down colonial structure:
It is widely accepted in the
STS [science and technology studies] community
communities often posses tacit knowledge that may be invaluable
in problem solving
(Wynne 1996, Epstein 1996) but is usually deprivileged within the dominant discourse.
We have shown, for example, that many traditional African villages were structured in a
process, using self-organization rather than imposed order. Could
hierarchal approaches that linger on in so many post-colonial African countries – often due to
the legacies of colonialism – also give way to more bottom-up self-organizing social processes?
There is an obvious need for a change in the methodologies of modernity on the African continent;
indigenous mathematical representations can provide fresh thinking to a
relationship of fractals to pi:
and fractal sets
The Mandelbrot set - Dave Boll - Gerald Edgar
In 1991 David Bolle tried to verify if the narrowing
we can see at (-0.75,0) was actually infinitely
thin. That is to
say that that however wide a non-zero width vertical line
would be passing through
that point it would
meet the fractal set before the x-axis.
D Bolle then had the idea of using the point c=(-0.75,X) for the quadratic iteration and to make
X tend to 0.
And there, what was his surprise
when he counted the number of iterations before which the series
diverged and by discovering the following table .:
Yes, it was
Pi that was appearing magnificientely ! As he could not manage to prove this he posted it in
1992 on the sci.maths newsgroup. Gerald Edgar from a university of Ohio answered it
on 27 march 1992
by bringing an intuitive explanation of this result.

Fractal geometry is a field
of maths born in the 1970’s and mainly developed by
The process by which shapes are made in fractal geometry is amazingly simple yet completely
different to classical
geometry. While classical geometry uses formulas to define a shape,
fractal geometry uses iteration. It therefore breaks away from giants such as Pythagoras, Plato
and Euclid and heads in another direction. Classical geometry has enjoyed over 2000 years of
geometry has enjoyed only 40.
How to make a fractal shape
are as follows:
1. Split every straight line into 3 equal segments.
2. Replace the middle segment with
an equilateral triangle, and remove the side of the triangle
corresponding to the initial straight line.
After this has iterated an infinite amount of times the fractal shape is defined. This
may sound bewildering but it is still possible to analyse it mathematically and visually
you can see what the shape starts to look like. The gif below (from Wikipedia) is a
good illustration of what the curve looks like by zooming in on it: The von Koch curve [above looks exactly like a snowflake]
is a great example of a
fractal: the rule you apply is simple, yet it results in such a complex shape. This kind
of shape is impossible to define using conventional maths, yet so easy to define
using fractal geometry.
On the tree above, if you snapped a branch off it and stood it up, it would look like the
tree. If you took a twig from the branch and stood it up, it
would still look like the
original tree [self-similar]. Again, this is a property that occurs in nature,
but until fractal
geometry there was not a good way to put it into maths.
only do these shapes look like natural objects, but the process
of iteration sounds
intuitive when thinking about nature. When a tree
is growing, its trunk will create branches,
these branches create further branches, these branches create twigs. It’s
as if the function is
a genetic code telling the branch how to grow and repeat itself, eventually creating
fibonacci numbers (sequence) and iterations:
A realistic map of the branching of a tree (or a variety of other plants too) is shown in the
figure below. In this case, the tree grows from the bottom
up, and the rule here is that a
branch grows one unit long in each iteration. When a branch is two units
long, it is strong
enough to support a node, which is where a new branch splits off. The branches alternate on the
left and the right, and very quicky a recognizable plant pattern emerges.
The rules that generate this fractal are really identical to the rules for the rabbit family
above, since it takes two iterations for a branch in the rabbit family tree to bifurcate,
and it also takes a tree branch two iterations before it is strong enough to bifurcate.
kind of self-similar pattern emerges,
because at any step you can look at a new rabbit pair, or
branch, as being the beginning of an entirely new sequence.
A little branch on a tree can be cut
off and planted and
will form a whole new tree. A grandchild rabbit can turn into the grandparent
of many rabbits. Any
unit, at any iteration, is just a scaled version of any other unit in

temples of ancient Egypt. Using a slightly different
approach, I [professor Ron Eglash]

of the temple of Karnak, as shown in
the figure 7.22. Figure 7.2b shows how these
numbers can be generated using a recursive
loop. This formal scaling plan may have
been derived from the nonnumeric versions
of scaling architecture we see
throughout Africa. - Page 87-89 of African Fractals.

Fibonacci himself. By all accounts, German
Kepler rediscovered the series
independently in 1611, and it was only in the mid-1800s, with the formal publication of Liber Abaci,
that french mathematician Edouard lucas found the Pisan historical predessor and named it
accordingly. This fact has received little attention, and most texts present

Logone-Birni, Cameroon. This historical architectural site has a golden ratio scaling
pattern embedded in its spatial design. The second is a similar scaling pattern in

that ancient Greek mathematicians knew of the Fibonacci series (89). However
(1965) found a use of the Fibonacci series (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13…) in the

a line such that it created a golden ratio, but never discussed constructing a
two-dimensional figure with that ratio.

architecture, Vitruvius, worked exclusively with proportions

In the original sub-Saharan architectures the structures are not largely determined
by quantitative formula; the Egyptian version thus provides
a more formal version
of the sub-Saharan recursive tradition. It is not unreasonable to speculate
Fibonacci brought the sequence from North Africa where it was used in the weights
of a scale balance as well as architecturally.
As shown in Figure 4 [above], we can postulate then that the golden ratio originated
in Sub-Saharan Africa, migrated north possibly to Egypt, and then traveled to Italy
and onward around the rest of the world.

Definition of Fractal The formal mathematical definition of fractal
is defined by Benoit
Mandelbrot. ... Generally, we can define
a fractal as a rough or fragmented geometric shape
that can be subdivided in parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size
copy of the whole.
logarithmic spirals and fractals:
Smaller pyramid within smaller spiral in center
is a fractal of larger pyramid within larger spiral.
Below: Logarithmic scaling and Great Pyramid of Egypt:
Figure Three shows a graph of the mean orientation among structures on a log scale. This
produces a linear
decline according to pyramid number. The measured values hold amazingly well
to a mathematical equation expressing the
decay, with small variance from the regression line.
The mathematical expression for this line is:
Y = A (intercept at 0 pyramid number) - B (slope) (pyramid number).
Y = A - B X P where P denotes the pyramid
Note that we are now dealing with logarithmic numbers
on the vertical scale, not linear numbers.
The orientations are expressed in the natural logarithm of the original number, while the pyramid
expressed on an ordinary linear scale.
For those who may not be acquainted with logarithms, two forms are commonly used
and the physical sciences. The first is called "common logs" based on multiples
of 10. 100 = 1,
101 = 10, 102 = 100, and so on. The second is called "natural logs" based on an important
physical constant we symbolize by the letter e = 2.71828. e0 = 1, e1= 2.71828, e2 = 7.389, and
so on. e most often
expresses the rate of natural decay processes.
In following discussion I shall use the symbolism of log to denote common
logs, and ln to denote
natural logs, following common practice in modern scientific and technical fields.
argue that the data from the pyramids are not natural; they do not come from natural
processes. They were devised by
human intelligence and control. However, the data plots show
that the designer prearranged his structures to express
a curve similar to natural decay. He
probably did so because he knew that anyone competent enough to detect the form of the curves
would be familiar with natural processes.
He also had to be familiar with natural decay
processes, and how they are expressed mathematically, otherwise he could
not imitate them.
After I calculated the intercept and the
slope of the orientations from the data on the basis
of a natural decay curve I bumped into another amazing
value. The intercept was 10 Pi and the
slope was very
nearly 1/Pi or possibly Pi/10. I show both the regression line calculated from
the data (solid) and the
two theoretical lines (dashed) on Figure Three.
We saw in the Great Pyramid Pi chamber that the designer used (Pi X ln
10) for one of his
dimensions to show his knowledge of
higher mathematics. Here he displays it with the intercept
values and the slope of the logarithmic decay.

element of instrumental call and response is also evident in
Drums of Passion, which was a collection of traditional Nigerian music for percussion and chanting. The album

Olatunji reached his greatest popularity during the
height of the Black Arts Movement of the 1960s and 1970s.
Among the most sophisticated polyrhythmic music in the world is south Indian classical Carnatic

I am the living mathematics;
How do cells duplicate themselves, and why? In all complex multicellular organisms
(eukaryotes), cell duplication occurs by a process called "mitosis" or cell division.
Growth. We all started
out as a single cell; the fusion of a sperm from dad and an egg
from mom. That original cell divided repeatedly until you grew
and differentiated into an
organism composed of billions of cells. But this raises an interesting
problem. When one
cell divides into two, both must have a copy of the genetic information.
cell division occurs, the genes must also make duplicates of themselves
so that all of the
important genetic information ends up in each of the new cells. The first cell divides into
two, and each of those two divide again, and this process
continues geometrically along
the following progression: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, and so on into the billions. That's

been part of the African divination system. In
Africa, Eglash encountered some of the most complex fractal systems that exist in religious activities,

Although the Mandelbrot set images start out from one simple
equation (Z = Z2 + C) due to the recusive nature
of the computer calculations,
little differences would first cause tiny differences, which would then affect
resulting next calculation a bit more, which would affect the output of the next run even more. The final
result of a long string of recursive calculations would lead to complex diversity of geometric patterns (shapes).

Physical form follows mathematical function (computational code or
program). A fractal is
created by recursion A + B = C (output), you take the output C and
bring it back in to repeat
the process, where the output C becomes the
input C + A = D, then you repeat the process
again, over and over. The output becomes the input which is KARMA, you get back what you
put out, a spiritual
law which Walter Russell called rhythmic balanced interchange. Rhythmic
means regular repetition or cyclic, balanced
means equal, interchange means giving and
receiving or output and input. We Know we exist, so there is something in the universe that
is self-similar to us but on a bigger or larger scale. The largest scale would
be the Infinite One,
the All, the whole. The whole is in the part and
the part is in the whole (a fractal).

Fractal recursive mathematics applies to physics, astronomy and other sciences.
The Oahspe vortex unified field theory of the universe:
Like a fractal a vortex is recursive, a circular process.
A vortex is sub-atomic particles (infinitesimal needles)
in rotary (circular) motion. Magnetism
is a manifestation of a recursive vortex force.
(vortex force) is the input of the vortex current. Gravity is the input of the vortex force. Negative vortex'ya
(m'vortex'ya) is the output of the vortex current. When the
vortex force is charged or stored in iron or
steel it is called magnetism. The current of the vortex force
is called electricity. When the vortex current
causes the sub-atomic particles to line up in one direction it
is called light. When the stored up vortex force is
liberated it is called fire or heat. A nuclear explosion is
liberated stored up atomic vortex force. Atomic mass
is the manifestation of stored up vortex force. Chemical
elements are the manifestation of the velocity,
pressure, configuration, and volume of the vortex force.Above: vortex with currents and lines of force, output at bottom, input at top.
Above left: magnet showing magnetic field lines (output N becomes input S)
Above center: vortex, output at bottom becomes input at top.
Above right: solar system vortex, output at bottom past Neptune becomes input at top center or sun.
Mathematical recursive vortex equation:
A + B = C, next step or iteration of the recursive process = C + A or B = D.
A + B = input, C = output, A + B = positive vortex'ya, C = negative or m'vortex'ya.
The center of the vortex between the input and the output is neutral, corpor, atom, planet or sun.
Above: blue line is positive vortex'ya, red
line is negative or m'vortex'ya.

and Prophecy: Chapter I:

remain poised from the sun centre outward,

15. The positive force of the vortex is, therefore, from the external toward the internal;
and the negative
force of the vortex is toward the poles, and in the ascendant toward the
external from the sun centre.

Dan and periodic
snake-like cycles notice how
very similar it is to the Oahspe concept of Dan, the Great Serpent
coil. In West Africa they call Dan the "cyclic Dan" and also "Dangbe",
this is very similar
to Oahspe calling Dan a "cyclic dawn" and "synonymous with dang". See below for proof:
Me calling a "warm up-spike
year a time of Dan" is equivalent to the West African concept of "Regular
phenomena in nature--the periodic aspects of weather ...are attributed to the action of Dan."
Above we see from Oahspe the Roadway of the Solar Phalanx showing the snake-like great serpent
of the solar system going through cyclic dawns of Dan. The Oahspe great
serpent and Dan (Dang)
is very similar to the West African symbolic concept of Dan (Dangbe).
Vodun cosmology centers around the vodun spirits and other elements of divine essence that
govern the Earth, a hierarchy that range
in power from major deities governing the forces of
nature and human society ...
In West Africa Dan is pictured as "a
serpent biting its tail". In Oahspe Plate 48.--THE CYCLIC COIL
see the spiral currents of the
vortex spiral inward to the sun-center and then spiral and go
out from the center toward the tail. Oahspe says "a
very long serpent in spiral form, constantly
turning its head in at one pole, and its tail at the other".

A particularly challenging question, which seems to have been investigated extensively, and experimentally,
by the Chokwe is "What layouts of dots, or dots and walls,
can give rise to one-line drawings, when following
ball" rule above?" Mathematicians investigating these
drawings have discovered a variety of
theorems addressing parts of this question. The two most fundamental theorems discovered seem to have
been known, in one
form or another, to the Chokwe artists.
origins in graph theory.
Network theory was first introduce as “graph theory” by Euler. Rather
than “links” and “nodes” he called
“vertices” and “edges.”
Network theory origins in Lusona? Recall that lusona, the African design practice of drawing graphs in the
sand, had exactly the same constraints: a connected
path that never re-traces. Could we also credit the
Tchokwe with the origins of network theory?
Lusona is a
Eulerian Path mandala [a geometric figure] that shows up

The branch of mathematics that studies knots is known as knot theory, and has
many simple relations to graph theory.
Perhaps surprisingly, there will always be some knotted loop in a sufficiently complicated network. Such
“sufficiently complicated” networks are called intrinsically knotted graphs. Very complicated graphs are
always intrinsically knotted, and very simple graphs
are always not, but graphs in between may be harder

S. Foisy and Lewis D. Ludwig Abstract. Since the early 1980s,
has been a favorite topic for undergraduate research due to its accessibility and breadth of
applications. By the early 1990s, knot theory was recognized as another such area of mathematics,
part due to C. Adams’ text, The Knot Book. In this paper, we
discuss the intersection of these two fields and
provide a survey of current
work in this area, much of which involved undergraduates.

Chemical graph theory is
a branch of mathematics which combines graph theory and chemistry. Graph theory
is used to mathematically
model molecules in order to gain insight into the physical properties of these chemical
compounds. Some physical properties, such as the boiling
point, are related to the geometric structure of the
compound. This is especially true in the case of chemical
compounds known as alkanes. Alkanes are organic
compounds exclusively composed of
carbon and hydrogen atoms.
The resulting representation of ethane is the carbon tree shown in Figure 2 . This carbon
tree can be represented
as a graph by replacing
the carbon atoms with vertices.
Chemical bonds are then
represented as an edge in the graph.

Using Sierpinski fractal to analyze and investigate
pore distribution and heat transfer performance of metal foam.
of Pore Distribution on Melting Behavior of Paraffin in Fractal Metal Foam*
An unsteady model of melting heat transfer in metal foam filled with paraffin is developed and numerically
analyzed. In the model, the pore distribution of metal foam is described by Sierpinski fractal. By this fractal
description, six types of metal foams with the identical porosity,
different pore distributions are reconstructed.
The effect of pores distribution on the heat transfer performance of the
paraffin/copper foam composite is
emphatically investigated. The solid-liquid distribution, the evolution of the
melting front, the dynamic
temperature response and the total
melting time in these six fractal structures are all examined and analyzed.
The results indicate that, the pores distribution
has a significant impact on the melting heat transfer of the
paraffin in the metal foam. When
the first-level fractal pore is located near the heat source boundary, the
thermal hysteresis effect of the paraffin on the solid matrix heat transfer is more significant. If the cross-sectional
length of the pores along the normal direction of heat transfer
is larger, the heat transfer barrier of the solid
greater. It is favorable for the paraffin heat transfer when the pores specific surface area is larger.

Compact microstrip antenna based on fractal metasurface with low radar cross section and wide
The compact antenna with wide bandwidth
is important. In this paper, we have studied the microstrip slot
for wireless application based on the fractal structure which has covered 2.3–4?GHz (85% bandwidth).
The fractal model
has been considered for low RCS, for improving the bandwidth, for amending the matching of
the antenna by controlling the current distribution and it is modified for C-band application.
The results show that the
fractal shape is used for the bandwidth enhancement and experimental results are
confirmed by our simulations. As a result, we show that how the metasurface combination with the antenna
can be considered for improving the bandwidth and RCS simultaneously.
The microstrip antenna
is a conventional kind of antenna for radar application which it is used
applications such as communication system, medical application, mobile services and radar systems in missile
, .In addition, the radar cross section (RCS) of the antenna is known as an important factor for some of
these applications . The radar cross section (RCS) is noticed for stealth application
by coating the surface
of an aircraft , . Exactly, the RCS is a parameter for measuring of the object detection and the low RCS
means that an object can find hard [hard to find] by radar systems. Consequently,
it is attractive for stealth
application . On the other hand, nowadays antennas with low RCS have been
noticed while the fractal
technique is one of the main methods for this goal . Moreover, the ultra-wideband antenna with low RCS
considered such Vivaldi antenna , the monopole antenna with small ground .
as mentioned the fractal method is developed as a conventional
method for RCS reduction
while the fractal shapes are known as self-similar shapes, and are usually found in galaxies,
mountain ranges, coastlines, snowflakes, trees, and leaves  and fractal method have been examined for
various applications like antenna  and the absorbers based on metamaterial . Recently, the fractal
shapes are more attractive to reflect-array
, ,  and monopole  antenna to reduce the RCS. Fig. 1. The four steps in antenna design from slot antenna to slot antenna with the fractal ring.

The slot antenna is known as
best antenna in various applications like radar

low RCS and wide bandwidth are
both necessary for these systems and so the slot antenna with
formation and parasitic element is suggested for C-band application.

The splendid generative potential of the Sierpinski triangle

One transistor can become an oscillator
with a surprising richness of behavior. However, even more interesting
emerge if the structure of connections is fractal and shows some imperfections. Could similar rules explain
the diversity and complexity of human brain dynamics?
Intuition suggests that self-similarity appears only in systems as complex as neural networks in the brain, or in
fascinating shapes of nature, for example, in fractal Romanesco broccoli buds. At the Institute of Nuclear Physics
of the Polish
Academy of Sciences (IFJ PAN) in Cracow, researchers made a discovery that in some ways challenges
this belief. In close collaboration with colleagues from the University of Catania and the University of
Trento in Italy,
the researchers constructed an elementary electronic oscillator based on just one transistor. As it turns out,
it contains fractal arrangements of inductors and capacitors, these
generate amazingly rich characteristics of the
Scientists from all disciplines have long been fascinated by fractals.
But it is only recently that engineers have
started taking an interest in them for practical applications.
The latest research shows that in
simple, fractal electronic oscillators, imperfections in the structure of
connections radically increase the dynamics of behavior. This result
provokes some speculations related to the
structure and functions of the human brain.
"We might be tempted to assume that imperfections in the layout of neural connections
arise accidentally in a
process of brain growth from a structure
that would otherwise be ideal by definition. In fact, this is probably not
the case, and their presence may serve a specific purpose and be a result of long-term natural selection.
networks with defects will manifest more complex
dynamics. Who knows, then, if inspired by this observation,
one day we will even intentionally build imperfect computers?"

evidence for fractal
light from simple lasers and add a new prediction, that the fractal

Fractals are complex objects with a "pattern within a pattern" so that the structure
appears to repeat as you zoom in or out of it. Nature creates such "patterns
patterns" by many recursions of a simple rule, for example, to produce a snowflake.
Computer programmes have also been used to do so by looping through the rule over and
over, famously producing the
abstract Mandelbrot Set.
The light inside lasers also does this: it cycles back and forth, bouncing between the
mirrors on each pass, which can
be set to image the light into itself on each round trip.
This looks just like a recursive loop, repeating a simple rule over
and over. The imaging

the light returns to the image plane it is a smaller (or bigger)
