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 Polish-born French-American 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".
