Description:


    Fractal cluster growth occurs in a wide range of physical phenomena, such as particle aggregation and viscous fingering. A common model for this growth is Diffusion-Limited Aggregation (DA) in which particles move following Brownian Motion and adhere when they strike existing particles. The music accompanying the video is also fractal, derived from the history of IBM stock prices.
