Numerical computations such as addition,
multiplication, etc., have inherent round-off errors. Iterative computations
magnify this round-off error because of feedback with amplification. The
round-off error growth structures generate the beautiful fractal patterns.
The complex structures found in nature
fractals, i.e., posses selfsimilar geometry. Simple iterative
growth processes may underlie the complex patterns found in nature The most fundamental selfsimilar structure
is the forking (bifurcating) structure (Jean, 1994
) of tree branches, tree roots, river tributaries, branched lightning,
etc. The hierarchy of complex branching structures occupy only a part (fraction)
of 3-dimensional space or a fraction of 2-dimensional space in a 2-dimensional
projection, and therefore they belong to the recently identified (Mandelbrot,
1977) category of fractal objects. The study of fractals
now belongs to the new field nonlinear dynamics and chaos, a multidisciplinary
area of intensive research in all fields of science in recent years.

Numerical integration schemes incorporate
iterative computations. Propagation of round-off error into the main stream
computation results in
deterministic chaos in computer realizations
of nonlinear mathematical models used for simulation of real world dynamical
Selfsimilar spatial structures imply long-range
spatial correlations or non-local connections.
Long-range spatiotemporal correlations (non-local connections) in atmospheric
flows Global cloud cover pattern exhibits
geometry.The existence of long-range spatial correlations such as the El-Nino
impact on global climate is now accepted.The global atmosphere acts as
a unified whole, where, local perturbations produce a global response.
A superstring theory for atmospheric flow dynamics?
A detailed theory is presented in the following
