Fractal image compression technology, one of the major digital image compression techniques, has been a well kept secret for many years. While there are many books written on other technologies, such as DCT/JPEG andwavelet theory, few books touch the subject of fractal image compression. Fractal Imaging presents the logic, technology, and various uses of fractal imaging by analyzing a complete, usable fractal image representation system. This detailed work will be a must for engineers interested in building fractal imaging systems. It will also be of interest to the general public, showing how mathematics once again plays a central role in our lives, where art and science intersect. Included is a CD-ROM containing fractal images and a freeware version of Iterated Systems fractal imaging utility.
