Fractals and Chaos: The Mandelbrot Set and Beyond

Front Cover
Springer, Jan 9, 2004 - Mathematics - 308 pages
0 Reviews

Just 23 years ago Benoit Mandelbrot published his famous picture of the Mandelbrot set, but that picture has changed our view of the mathematical and physical universe. In this text, Mandelbrot offers 25 papers from the past 25 years, many related to the famous inkblot figure. Of historical interest are some early images of this fractal object produced with a crude dot-matrix printer. The text includes some items not previously published.

Mostly a selection of the author's technical papers from the 1980s. The newly written and more discursive chapters are interesting, but even they show evidence of Mandelbrot's characteristic crypticality. Read full review
