Title: The Beauty of Fractal Geometry: Self-Similarity

I would reveal a totally new world of plastic beauty to you. This talk introduces basic concepts in fractal geometry: Hausdorff dimension, fractal, self-similar process. And it promotes a new mathematical and philosophical synthesis. Applications to financial modeling are given to show one face of interests of this field.
