a curve or geometric figure, each part of which has the same statistical character as the whole. Fractals are useful in modeling structures (such as eroded coastli…nes or snowflakes) in which similar patterns recur at progressively smaller scales, and in describing partly random or chaotic phenomena such as crystal growth, fluid turbulence, and galaxy formation.

A fractal by definition is actually a curve that has infinite length, like the Koch snowflake and Cantor set, to name a few.

Light per se is not fractal, but I have done work as a theoretician that indicates that photons can interfere with one another to form fractal patterns. See the links for furt…her information on my own investigations. I hope I have been a real help. (The first answer someone posted was "not spatial but fractal." I am not sure what he meant, but I include this answer here out of respect for the original contributor.) (MORE)

It is a shape that can be split into two parts and is one of those hipnotising patterns

Benoit Mandelbrot is the man who is usually credited to have discovered fractals in the year 1975. He was the first person to use this word and was also the first man to repre…sent them in visual form. But history also shows that some facts about fractals were known to mathematicians as early as the 17th century. (MORE)

Fractals can be generated with computer programs like Sterling or Apophysis. Both of these are freeware you can easily download. There are other programs, like Ultra Fractal a…nd Tierazon, as well. With Sterling, you are given a default fractal that you can transform using various modes, and then zoom in and search for a good design. With Apophysis, you are given a set of randomly-generated "flames" that you can transform using various "plug-ins", some of which are included in the download, others can be downloaded free. Apophysis flames are can be edited by manipulating the triangles that define it. Each triangle can be manipulated using plug-ins such as "spiral." Several tutorials are on the Internet, at places like deviantart.com, which has groups liked I linked below. An example of fractals generated with Sterling and Apophysis can be found in a gallery I also linked below. (MORE)

A fractal is a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole (self similar). The… term "fractal" was coined by Benoît Mandelbrot in 1975 and was derived from the Latin fractus meaning "broken" or "fractured." A mathematical fractal is based on an equation that undergoes iteration, a form of feedback based on recursion. (MORE)

yes i think so because a fractal is an object that is self-similar all squares are similar; so are all cubes
