Pub Science: Fractal Geometry, Basic Concepts and Applications

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a…triangle? A piece of pizza can be described as “square” or “triangular” in shape, but what about irregular shapes like trees and clouds, or even seemingly amorphous phenomena, like precipitation or temperature fluctuation? Join Behzad Ghanbarian Alavijeh, Professor of Physics at Wright State University, to discover how we describe and define these irregular shapes using fractal geometry, and learn some of the basic concepts that are used to create these beautiful and purposeful images.

Pub Science provides a unique opportunity for adults to explore the newest thinking and scientific research in a casual atmosphere.  No prior knowledge of the subjects is required, and there are no silly questions. Just bring yourself, your friends and your curiosity!  It is currently held at Blind Bob’s, located in Dayton’s Oregon District. Admission to Pub Science is free; donations accepted at the door.

The presentation doesn't begin until 6:30pm but the seating fills up fast!  We'll be there at 5:45pm to load up on food and drinks.  Hope to see you there!

    J's flight was delayed so I'll be there. I was working downtown today so I'll also probably be there well before 5:45 and will grab a table for 4.

    I would like to do this, but need to pick up J at the airport. If his flight is delayed, I'll update my RSVP-- likely at the last minute. Have fun!

    I will be there, possibly with a friend, possibly with another Meetup. But, I'll be there.
