fractal


Explanation:
I think this is a typo. It should be 'fractal', especially given your context! The translation is the same in English - fractal. From the link below:

fractal

NOUN: A geometric pattern that is repeated at ever smaller scales to produce irregular shapes and surfaces that cannot be represented by classical geometry. Fractals are used especially in computer modeling of irregular patterns and structures in nature.

fractile


Explanation:
I'm getting confused: aren't we going form Spanish into English? The references given by Google when you look up "fractil cálculo" all come in Spanish, most from Argentina, but none so far as I could see, from an English-speaking source.

Trying to remember my statistics I think fractile is one of a group of wordes ending in "-ile", including Percentile, Decile, etc.

To be honest I've never heard of fractil in English - please show me a believable reference!!
