The fundamental concepts of fractal geometry and chaotic dynamics, alongwith the related concepts of multifractals, self-similar time series, wavelets,and self-organized criticality, are introduced in this book, for a broad rangeof readers interested in complex natural phenomena.Now in a greatly expanded, second edition, this book relates fractals andchaos to a variety of geological and geophysical applications. These includedrainage networks and erosion, floods, earthquakes, mineral and petroleumresources, fragmentation, mantle convection, and magnetic field generation.Many advances have been made in the field since the first edition was pub-lished. In this new edition coverage of self-organized criticality is expandedand statistics and time series are included to provide a broad background forthe reader. All concepts are introduced at the lowest possible level of mathe-matics consistent with their understanding, so that the reader requires only abackground in basic physics and mathematics.
Fractals and Chaos in Geology and Geophysics
can be used as a text foradvanced undergraduate and graduate courses in the physical sciences. Prob-lems are included for the reader to solve.
