Fractal Geometry: Mathematical Foundations and Applications
The seminal text on fractal geometry for students andresearchers: extensively revised and updated with new material,notes and references that reflect recent directions.
Interest in fractal geometry continues to grow rapidly, both asa subject that is fascinating in its own right and as a conceptthat is central to many areas of mathematics, science andscientific research. Since its initial publication in 1990Fractal Geometry: Mathematical Foundations and Applicationshas become a seminal text on the mathematics of fractals. Thebook introduces and develops the general theory and applications offractals in a way that is accessible to students and researchersfrom a wide range of disciplines.
Fractal Geometry: Mathematical Foundations andApplications is an excellent course book for undergraduate andgraduate students studying fractal geometry, with suggestions formaterial appropriate for a first course indicated. The book alsoprovides an invaluable foundation and reference for researchers whoencounter fractals not only in mathematics but also in other areasacross physics, engineering and the applied sciences.
