does it have other applications in maths?
how is it used in fractals?Originally posted by KL Kam
After doing some research in google, I found 2 results.
1) It is used to visualize the Cantor set
2) It can be put under the topic, fractals (I prefer a 2D fractal to a one-dimension one )
Besides these 2, I don't know whether it has any other application in math

how is it used in fractals?
Cantor's Comb is a geometric fractal pattern discovered by mathematician Georg Cantor. It is created by connecting the midpoints of each line segment in a series of squares. In math, it is often used to demonstrate the concept of infinity and to study the properties of fractals.
Cantor's Comb has several applications in mathematics, including being used as a model for the construction of self-similar sets, as a tool for studying the properties of infinite series, and as a visual representation of the concept of infinity.
Yes, while Cantor's Comb is primarily used in mathematics, it has also been applied in other fields such as physics, computer science, and art. Its self-similar and infinite properties have inspired research in various fields.
Some of the limitations and challenges of using Cantor's Comb in mathematical applications include its complexity and the difficulty in calculating its properties, as well as the challenge of visualizing and understanding the concept of infinity.
While Cantor's Comb may not have direct real-world applications, the concepts and properties it represents have been applied in fields such as telecommunications, finance, and biology. Additionally, the study of Cantor's Comb has led to advancements in other areas of mathematics and science.
