The University of New Mexico University Libraries hosts, "Fractals, Chaos and the Patterns of Nature," a lecture by Jonathan Wolfe, Wednesday, March 2, at 1 p.m. in Zimmerman Library's Willard Reading Room.

Wolfe is the creator, producer and narrator of the First Friday Fractals show, a sold-out monthly event held at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. The award-winning full-dome planetarium show takes viewers on a tour of fractals in nature and zooms through infinitely complex mathematical fractals.

Wolfe will give an adapted lecture and presentation for the students of UNM. A reception follows.
