Complex Systems Similarity through Fractal Folding

By folding fractals into 3-D objects, a mathematical duo hopes to gain new insight into simple equations. .... " 

The only direct application I ever saw of fractals in industry was for an unusual packaging application.    This article suggests that they can be used to suggest some similarity between otherwise different equations.  And maybe then used to solve them in new, perhaps faster ways?   But no examples are given, so am hard pressed to see it.  But good luck, and it is always astounding to see beauty arise from such simple statements of mathematics.  Why?  - FAD

There are lots of Apps and packages online for experimenting with fractals, if you have a child that is even a little math inclined, easy to demonstrate the ideas. -   FAD
