Description - Fractal Geometry by Kenneth Falconer
The seminal text on fractal geometry for students and
researchers: extensively revised and updated with new material,
notes and references that reflect recent directions.
Interest in fractal geometry continues to grow rapidly, both as
a subject that is fascinating in its own right and as a concept
that is central to many areas of mathematics, science and
scientific research. Since its initial publication in 1990
Fractal Geometry: Mathematical Foundations and Applications
has become a seminal text on the mathematics of fractals. The
book introduces and develops the general theory and applications of
fractals in a way that is accessible to students and researchers
from a wide range of disciplines.
Fractal Geometry: Mathematical Foundations and
Applications is an excellent course book for undergraduate and
graduate students studying fractal geometry, with suggestions for
material appropriate for a first course indicated. The book also
provides an invaluable foundation and reference for researchers who
encounter fractals not only in mathematics but also in other areas
across physics, engineering and the applied sciences.
