Book Description

Fractal geometry is a new way of looking at the world. We have been surrounded by natural patterns, unsuspected but easily recognized after only an hour's training. This is a collection of pages meant to support a first course in fractal geometry for students without especially strong mathematical preparation, or any particular interest in science. Each of the topics contains examples of fractals in the arts, humanities, or social sciences.

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 term fractal was coined around 1975 by Benoit Mandelbrot to intuitively describe an object as complicated, rough, or fractured.
