Introducing fractal geometry
Fractal Geometry is the geometry of the natural world - animal, vegetable ad mineral. It’s about the broken, wrinkled, wiggly world - the uneven shapes of nature, unlike the idealised forms of Euclidean geometry. Using computers, it can make precise models of physical structures - from ferns to galaxies. Fractal geometry is a new language. 'Introducing Fractal Geometry' traces the historical development of this mathematical discipline, explores its descriptive powers in the natural world, and then looks at the applications and the implications of the discoveries it has made.
