Book Description
This book has become a seminal text on the mathematics of Fractals. It introduces the general mathematical theory and applications of fractals in a way that is accessible to students from a wide range of disciplines.
 Provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the mathematical theory and applications of fractals.
 Each topic is carefully explained and illustrated by examples and figures.
 Includes all necessary mathematical background material.
 Includes notes and references to enable the reader to pursue individual topics.
 Features a wide selection of exercises, enabling the reader to develop their understanding of the theory.
 Supported by a Web site featuring solutions to exercises, and additional material for students and lecturers.
It is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students studying courses in fractal geometry. The book also provides an excellent source of reference for researchers who encounter fractals in mathematics, physics, engineering, and the applied sciences.
About the Authors Michael Frame is an American mathematician and retired Yale professor.
 Benoit Mandelbrot was a Polishborn FrenchAmerican mathematician and polymath with broad interests in the practical sciences, especially regarding what he labeled as "the art of roughness" of physical phenomena and "the uncontrolled element in life".

Fractals: Art to Applied Science (Benjamin Kenwright)
This text is a reference for learning and mastering Fractals (theoretical and applied perspective). It discuss how the fractal algorithms function, present code examples in editable sandboxes with explanations.

A Tale of Two Fractals (A.A. Kirillov)
This book provides an original treatment of Fractals that is at once accessible to beginners and sufficiently rigorous for serious mathematicians. It is designed to give young, nonspecialist mathematicians a solid foundation in the theory of fractals.

Fractal Geometry (Mark McClure, et al.)
Fractal geometry is a new way of looking at the world. This book combines text and graphics to offer the most accessible amount that any reader is likely to find, helping in the overall move toward scientific literacy.

The Fractional Calculus: Theory and Applications
Not only does it explain the theory (Fractional Calculus) underlying the properties of the generalized operator, but it also illustrates the wide variety of fields to which these ideas may be applied.

Fractals in Probability and Analysis (Christopher J. Bishop, et al.)
This is a mathematically rigorous introduction to Fractals which emphasizes examples and fundamental ideas. Building up from basic techniques of geometric measure theory and probability. Chapters are designed to be read independently.

Strange Attractors: Creating Patterns in Chaos (Julien C. Sprott)
This book describes a simple method for generating an endless succession of beautiful Fractal patterns by iterating simple maps and ordinary differential equations with coefficients chosen automatically by the computer.

Conformal Fractals: Ergodic Theory Methods (Feliks Przytycki, ...)
This is a onestop introduction to the methods of Ergodic Theory applied to holomorphic iteration. Focus on the field of 1dimensional holomorphic iterations and underlying Fractal sets, from the point of view of geometric measure theory and rigidity.

Chaos and Fractals (Larry Bradley)
This book provides the reader with an elementary introduction to Chaos and Fractals, suitable for readers with a background in elementary algebra, without assuming prior coursework in calculus or physics.

Random Fractals (Peter Morters)
Random Fractals are the method of choice when it comes to modelling landscapes, clouds and other natural phenomena. Describes the fundamentals of random fractals and some of the basic methods for their generation.

The Fractal Geometry of Nature (Benoit Mandelbrot)
Explore the wondrously complex repeating shapes of the natural world in The Fractal Geometry of Nature. Written in a style that is accessible to a wide audience, computer scientist, professor, mathematician, etc.
