Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Self-similarity is related to symmetry analysis is an attribute of many physical laws: particle physics and those governing Newton's laws of gravitation. Symmetry, found throughout the biological universe, is also a basic property of the mathematical universe. In this book the author explores the idea's of scaling, self-similarity, chaos. and fractals as they appear throughout the universe of pure and applied mathematics. Because of his formidable research experience, stretching from the acoustical modelling of concert halls to pure number theory, Schroeder is able to take the reader on an intellectual excursion through this vast forest of topics. Requires a basic familiarity with undergraduate mathematics and elementary physics.
