Fractal Geometry: Mathematical Foundations and Applications

Buy
An accessible introduction to fractals, useful as a text or reference. Part I is concerned with the general theory of fractals and their geometry, covering dimensions and their methods of calculation, plus the local form of fractals and their projections and intersections. Part II contains examples of fractals drawn from a wide variety of areas in mathematics and physics, including self-similar and self-affine sets, graphs of functions, examples from number theory and pure mathematics, dynamical systems, Julia sets, random fractals, and some physical applications. Also contains many diagrams and illustrative examples, includes computer drawings of fractals, and shows how to produce further drawings. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Since its original publication in 1990, Kenneth Falconer’s Fractal Geometry: Mathematical Foundations and Applications 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. This new edition has been extensively revised and updated. It features much new material, many additional exercises, notes and references, and an extended bibliography that reflects the development of the subject since the first edition.
  • 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.

Fractal Geometry: Mathematical Foundations and Applications 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.

Pragmatic Project Automation: How to Build, Deploy, and Monitor Java Apps
Pragmatic Project Automation: How to Build, Deploy, and Monitor Java Apps
Forget wizards, you need a slave--someone to do your repetitive, tedious and boring tasks, without complaint and without pay, so you'll have more time to design and write exciting code. Indeed, that's what computers are for. You can enlist your own computer to automate all of your project's repetitive tasks, ranging from individual builds and...

GNSS Markets and Applications (GNSS Technology and Applications)

After being shrouded in esoterica for a long time, Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) have become part of everyday life, especially the Global Positioning System (GPS). Having spent 40 years involved with the subject, it became clear to me that it would be useful to have a book about the business aspects of these systems. This...
