Fractal

A fractal is an irregular shape produced by repeating the same geometrical process over and over again. The main characteristic of a fractal is that it has the same amount of detail no matter how closely you look at it (in other words, no matter how big your magnifying glass is). This is not true of non-fractal shapes such as circles, which seem to become straighter and straighter as you look at them  with greater magnification (http://www.mathsphere.co.uk/resources/dictionary.swf).
