Hi Gerasimov;

Welcome to the forum.

What type of math do you like? What type are you good at? What is the age and type of the audience?

Then you can do it about the Fibonacci Sequence. There is probably more literature on that sequence than all the rest put together. There is even a journal devoted to it.

which is that journal.. my time limit is 15min.

in that time i have to complete fractals, fibonacci spiral, farmats spiral, logarithmic spiral and other pattrens that exist in nature.

i dont have proper information regarding logarithmic spiral and Lindenmayer system in fractals

They call it The Fibonacci Quarterly.

I did some work with L systems when I was a beta tester for Mupad.

Have you ever seen a Barnsley fern?

Hmmm, is it wise to mention some topic that you know less than even I do? You could always leave it out...

I can give you some nice visual images for an L system but I am not an expert on them. They might make a nice display.

A logarithmic spiral is best described right here.

Yes very much so.

There is an online site that will generate L systems. It is better than mathematica for this job.

It is called the Fibonacci Quarterly. A university library would have it in the reference section.
