Titles About Fractal Geometry
Many are familiar with the beauty and ubiquity of fractal forms within nature. Unlike the study of smooth forms such as spheres, Fractal Geometry describes more familiar shapes and patterns, such as the complex contours of coastlines, the outlines of clouds, and the branching of trees. This title looks at the roots of the ‘fractal revolution’ that occurred in mathematics in the 20th century, presents the New Fractal Geometry, explains the basic concepts, and explores the wide range of applications in science, and in aspects of economics.
From Zeno to Mandelbrot: this title explores the new language of Fractal Geometry with which you can describe the shape of cloud as precisely as an architect can describe a house.
A Reasonably Accessible Mathematics Text That Was Written By The Pioneer Of The Field Of Fractal Mathematics Himself – A Definite Must Read And Must Have Reference Book In The Field: Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, and lightening does not travel in a straight line. The complexity of nature’s shapes differs in kind, not merely degree, from that of the shapes of ordinary geometry, the geometry of fractal shapes
Contemplate the Patterns of the Universe as you color! Fractal Geometry is at the heart of many natural wonders and has an abstract beauty all its own, in the silhouette of a snowflake, the spiral seeds of a sunflower, and the symmetry of the Sri Yantra mandala. From the 4-D hypercube that casts a starlike shadow, to the infinite pattern of Penrose tiles that never perfectly repeats, these 57 exquisite designs reveal their secrets as you fill them with color. No math knowledge is required!
This groundbreaking 3D showcase offers a rare glimpse into the dazzling world of computer-generated fractal art. Prolific polymath Clifford Pickover introduces the collection, which provides background on everything from the classic Mandelbrot set, to the infinitely porous Menger Sponge, to ethereal fractal flames. This eye-popping gallery displays mathematical formulas of Fractal Geometry transformed into stunning computer-generated 3D anaglyphs. More than 200 intricate designs, visible in three dimensions thanks to the enclosed 3D glasses, will engross math and optical illusions enthusiasts alike.
