Just a Second: Fractal Analysis

Fractal Analysis (noun)

A type of mathematical analysis that finds patterns and translates it to a set of numbers with a particular mean and standard deviation.

About a decade ago, physicists used fractal analysis to examine paintings by Jackson Pollock and claimed they found a way to authenticate Pollock’s images.  The analytical method was later shown to be unsuccessful.
