Intro to Chaos and Fractals: Final Papers

The final paper is due on the last day of class.

For a list of possible paper topics, click here.


Your paper should be around 4-5 pages. Try to write concisely. A shorter, concise paper is much better than a longer, rambling one.


For all papers, assume that your audience is a reasonably educated person who doesn't know much about chaos or fractals.

Terms to Define

Since your audience is non-technical, if you use any of the following terms, you'll need to define them. It's best to define them in your own words. If you can't, be sure to give citations. Also, for many of these, you'll need to do more than define just one word. For example, it might be hard to define chaos without also defining and/or giving an example of a dynamical system.
