The suggestion is that Africans should be encouraged to master modern
technology in whatever language that they can and apply such knowledge to
practical problems facing Africans at home and abroad. Yet others suggest the
reconstitution of Africa along ... In this connection, we should reiterate the point
made above: that the principles used in the design of supercomputers today were
derived from principles of African Fractals. Philip Emegwali testifies to this when
he admitted that ...

As in the case of Batty and Longley, the French author proposes the use of
fractals to measure and characterize these irregular structures. Another line of
research has focused on indigenous cities and settlements. In the end of the
1990s, in the book 'African fractals: modern computing and indigenous design',
Ron Eglash has shown how fractal patterns, calculation and theory are
expressed in African cultures. He does it by moving along a spectrum of the
presence of mathematics in ...
