Is it Shakespeare's famous tragedy Romeo and Julia or rather the name of Julius Caesar's daughter? What about the programming language designed for high-performance numerical analysis? What do you link with Julia?
Our association is different and heavily influenced by chaos. While most traditional science deals with predictable phenomena such as gravity, electricity or chemical reactions, chaos is the science of surprises and the unpredictable. It deals with things that are impossible to predict or control. Examples are the weather, stock market or our brain. These phenomena are often described by fractal mathematics that captures the infinite complexity of nature. A fractal is a never-ending pattern, created by repeating a simple process over and over again. It represents the picture of chaos. Surprisingly, chaos is not simply disorder, but rather the exploration of transitions between order and disorder. In mathematics, the Julia set is a special set with chaotic properties that in turn builds the fundamentals for creating fractals. It is named after its creator, the French mathematician Gaston Maurice Julia (1893 - 1978) – and so is our company.
