Anthony Zaleski is a senior at the New Jersey Institute of Technology who expects to earn his BS in applied mathematics Spring 2013. Afterwards, he plans to pursue a PhD in mathematics at Princeton, NYU's Courant Institute, Brown, or Rutgers. He was first encouraged to write a paper by Dr. Denis Blackmore, one of his professors at NJIT. When he said that one of his interests was fractals (which he had long appreciated from an artistic standpoint but had never studied in an analytical context), Dr. Blackmore suggested a pursuit of this topic. The Weierstrass-Mandelbrot function was an appropriate sub-field since Dr. Blackmore had already done research concerning its surface generalizations. Anthony wishes to thank Dr. Blackmore for the helpful comments he offered, especially during the final stage of revising his work. Send Email
