Niels Fabian Helge von Koch (25 January 1870 – 11 March 1924) was a Swedish mathematician who gave his name to the famous fractal known as the Koch snowflake, one of the earliest fractal curves to be described. He was born into a family of Swedish nobility.
Niels Fabian Helge von Koch: Niels Fabian Helge von Koch, Swedish mathematician famous for his discovery of the von Koch snowflake curve, a continuous curve important in the study of fractal geometry. Von Koch was a student of Gösta Mittag-Leffler and succeeded him as professor of mathematics at Stockholm University in 1911.
Helge von Koch's father was Richert Vogt von Koch, who had a military career, and his mother was Agathe Henriette Wrede.Von Koch attended a good school in Stockholm, completing his studies there in 1887. He then entered Stockholm University. Stockholm University was the third university in Sweden and it was planned from 1865, opening in 1880 with Mittag-Leffler as its first professor of ...

Koch, Helge von (b.Stockholm, Sweden, 25 January 1870; d.Stockholm[?], 11 March 1924) mathematics.. Von Koch is known principally for his work in the theory of infinitely many linear equations and the study of the matrices derived from such infinite systems.
The Koch snowflake is a fractal curve, also known as the Koch island, which was first described by Helge von Koch in 1904. It is built by starting with an equilateral triangle, removing the inner third of each side, building another equilateral triangle at the location where the side was removed ...

The Koch snowflake is the limit approached as the above steps are followed over and over again. The Koch curve originally described by Helge von Koch is constructed with only one of the three sides of the original triangle. In other words, three Koch curves make a Koch snowflake. Properties Perimeter of the Koch snowflake
The Koch Snowflake was created by the Swedish mathematician Niels Fabian Helge von Koch. In his 1904 paper entitled "Sur une courbe continue sans tangente, obtenue par une construction géométrique élémentaire" he used the Koch Snowflake to show that it is possible to have figures that are continuous everywhere but differentiable nowhere.
