Title:Sierpinski Galore
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Robert Devaney, Boston University
Abstract:
In this talk we show how Sierpinski curves (sets homeomorphic to the Sierpinski carpet) arise in a myriad of different ways as the Julia sets of certain families of rational maps. While these sets are always the same topologically, usually they are very different from a dynamical systems point of view.
