The basic mathematical concept of fractals is explained. A limited set of examples of fractals in nature, drawn mainly from condensed matter physics, is given. Current understanding of how fractals are formed in nature, as learned through computer simulation, is examined. Diffusion is used as an example to illustrate some of the anomalous physical properties of fractal systems.<>
