Fractals, Scaling & Growth Far from Equilibrium

by

Fractals, Scaling & Growth Far from Equilibrium Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book describes the progress that has been made towards the development of a comprehensive understanding of the formation of complex, disorderly patterns under conditions far from equilibrium. The application of fractal geometry and scaling concepts to the quantitative description and understanding of structure formed under non-equilibrium conditions is described. Self-similar fractals, multi-fractals and scaling methods are discussed, with examples, to facilitate applications in the physical sciences. Computer simulations and experimental studies are emphasised, but the author also includes discussion of theoretical advances in the subject. Much of the book deals with diffusion-limited growth processes and the evolution of rough surfaces, although a broad range of other applications is also included. The techniques and topics will be relevant to graduate students and researchers in physics, chemistry, materials science, engineering and the earth sciences, interested in applying the ideas of fractals and scaling.

Synopsis:

Describes the progress that has been made towards understanding the formation of complex, disorderly patterns under conditions far from equilibrium.

Synopsis:

This book is concerned with the formation of complex, disorderly patterns under conditions far from equilibrium. The application of fractal geometry and scaling concepts to a broad range of phenomena is presented with emphasis on practical problems and pitfalls. The author illustrates how simple concepts and theoretical methods can be used to obtain answers to problems that would be difficult to address using other approaches. The techniques and topics discussed in this book are relevant to many areas of science and technology.

Synopsis:

A comprehensive, up-to-date account of the practical aspects and pitfalls of the applications of fractal modelling in the physical sciences.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 608-662) and index.
