For almost ten years chaos and fractals have been enveloping many areas of mathematics and the natural sciences in their power, creativity and expanse. Reaching far beyond the traditional bounds of mathematics and science to the realms of popular culture, they have captured the attention and enthusiasm of a worldwide audience. The fourteen chapters of the book cover the central ideas and concepts, as well as many related topics including, the Mandelbrot Set, Julia Sets, Cellular Automata, L-Systems, Percolation and Strange Attractors, and each closes with the computer code for a central experiment. In the two appendices, Yuval Fisher discusses the details and ideas of fractal image compression, while Carl J.G. Evertsz and Benoit Mandelbrot introduce the foundations and implications of multifractals.

Fractals are intimately related to the nonlinear processes in nature. Whereas studies of dynamics may lead to the chaotic phenomena, analysis of the underlying geometry leads to fractals. Currently, the field of fractals represents a fast developing research area.This publication contains state-of-the-art contributions exploring a spread of applications right across the disciplines, from physics and mathematics, through astronomy, biophysics, ecology and geography to image processing, medicine and turbulence. It will prove a valuable addition to the library of many a scientist interested in the field of fractals and related phenomena.

This fascinating book explores the connections between chaos theory, physics, biology, and mathematics. Its award-winning computer graphics, optical illusions, and games illustrate the concept of self-similarity, a typical property of fractals. The author - hailed by Publishers Weekly as a modern Lewis Carroll - conveys memorable insights in the form of puns and puzzles. 1992 edition.
