## Cantor DustCantor set, possibly the first pure fractal
ever found – by Georg Cantor around 1872.
To produce Cantor Dust, start with a line segment, divide it in to three
equal smaller segments, take out the middle one, and repeat this process
indefinitely. Although Cantor Dust is riddled with infinitely many gaps, it still contains uncountably many points. It has a fractal dimension of log 2/log 3, or approximately 0.631. ## Related entry• Sierpinski Carpet## Related category• FRACTALS AND PATHOLOGICAL CURVES | ||||||
