Fractal Geometry by Kenneth J. Falconer

Book Description

Since its original publication in 1990, Kenneth Falconera 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. aeo Provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the mathematical theory and applications of fractals. aeo Each topic is carefully explained and illustrated by examples and figures. aeo Includes all necessary mathematical background material. aeo Includes notes and references to enable the reader to pursue individual topics. aeo Features a wide selection of exercises, enabling the reader to develop their understanding of the theory. aeo 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.

Fractal Geometry by Kenneth J. Falconer Fractal Geometry, Hardback (January 2014)

This comprehensive and popular textbook makes fractal geometry accessible to final-year undergraduate math or physics majors, while also serving as a reference for research mathematicians or scientists. This up-to-date edition covers introductory multifractal theory, random fractals, and modern applications in finance and science.

Fractals: A Very Short Introduction by Kenneth J. Falconer Fractals: A Very Short Introduction, Paperback (September 2013)

From the contours of coastlines to the outlines of clouds, fractal shapes can be found regularly in nature. This Very Short Introduction explains the basic concepts, presents the 'new geometry' of fractals, explores its wide range of applications, and shows the central place fractals have gained in mathematics and science in recent years.

Techniques in Fractal Geometry by Kenneth J. Falconer Techniques in Fractal Geometry, Hardback (March 1997)

Following on from the success of Fractal Geometry: Mathematical Foundations and Applications, this new sequel presents a variety of techniques in current use for studying the mathematics of fractals. Much of the material presented in this book has come to the fore in recent years.

Geometry of Fractal Sets by Kenneth J. Falconer Geometry of Fractal Sets, Paperback (July 1986)

A mathematical study of the geometrical aspects of sets of both integral and fractional Hausdorff dimension. Considers questions of local density, the existence of tangents of such sets as well as the dimensional properties of their projections in various directions.
