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.

  • Provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the mathematical theory and     applications of fractals
