Introducing Fractal Geometry (Introducing...) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fractal geometry is the geometry of the natural world and is an extension of classical geometry.

Synopsis:

Fractal geometry is the geometry of the natural world and is an extension of classical geometry. Using computers, it can make precise models of physical structures — from ferns to galaxies. This book traces the historical development of this mathematical discipline, explores its descriptive powers in the natural world, and then looks at the applications and the implications of the discoveries it has made.

Synopsis:

Fractals are everywhere, and fractal geometry is a new, and essential, language.
