Fractals Everywhere: New Edition
The illustrations and diagrams frequently make use of smiley faces, words and other reassuringly non-abstract forms. I find it actually helps me learn cos it’s less intimidating while still conveying the concepts.
I guess it’s easier to do this when you’re dealing with 2d geometric objects, but in general hardly any math textbooks ever seem to show a sense of humor or any kind of personalit As math books go, this is pretty great. I guess it’s easier to do this when you’re dealing with 2d geometric objects, but in general hardly any math textbooks ever seem to show a sense of humor or any kind of personality.
Barnsley’s book about fractals is based on the course which he taught for undergraduate and graduate students in the School of Mathematics, Georgia Institute of Technology, called Fractal Geometry. After publishing the book, a second course was developed, called “Fractal Measure Theory”. Man I would’ve loved to have taken that class!! It’s frustrating cos I know that without the context of a class and required homework and tests, I’ll never get all the way through this book, yet I also know that I totally COULD understand this book if I put enough effort into it.
Fractals Everywhere: New Edition
This is unlike most math textbooks, which always get to a point where I give up knowing I’ll never really understand the material. Here there aren’t a lot of prereqs– topology, analysis and linear algebra all are used heavily, but not in a super complicated way. I guess I’m not the first person to get bitten by the fractal bug. Mandelbrot set is just so fascinating. Or even what such a reason would look like.
Something to do with the periodicity of complex polynomials? Did you know cauliflower has a fractal dimension? This was an “iffy” for me. This book was difficult at times to read that I did have to go back and re-read things, mainly because this is very new material to me. I have never heard of fractals until I have read this and I did learn a bit.
You can tell that this book was compiled, by the help of several other mathematicians, experienced in the branch of fractals. The only thing about fractals is that they are not studied as much as other subjects within the area of mathematics. Hence, they are r This was an “iffy” for me.
Hence, they are rare and only about Oct 31, HM rated it really liked it Shelves: Sep 06, Marco Bitetto rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This is a reasonably good introduction into how fractal mathematics can be used in everyday work.
The book is a bit challenging for the mathematically phobic. But, it is nevertheless readable and understandable. Nov 27, Robert rated it it was ok. Sigh, good books on fractals are so rare. This is, unfortunately, typical. Oct 04, Joey Zhouyuan rated it really liked it. Combine ideas of dynamical systems chaos and computer graphing. Systematically organized as balance the mainstream of the modern math branch in such intro level reading.
