Title: Fractals, Forgeries, and Forensics: Using Fractal Analysis to Identify Forged Handwriting
Abstract:  This talk will introduce fractals and their relationship to forensic science. Examples of true and statistically self-similar fractals and their definitions will be given. This talk will also highlight the two important dimensions that classify fractals: the topological dimension and the Hausdorff-Besicovitch dimension, which is also known as fractal dimension. My research focuses on using fractal analysis to identify forged handwriting.
