9780120790616: Fractals Everywhere

This volume is the revised second edition of the original book, published in 1988. It includes additional problems and tools emphasizing fractal applications, as well as an all-new answer key to the text exercises. The revision incorporates new chapters on vector recurrent iterated function systems and application of fractals. It also contains an extended chapter on dynamical systems. Input from advisors and potential adopters should make it more suitable for use as a textbook. This book should be of interest to mathematicians and computer scientists, upper-level undergraduate students and graduate students at universities offering courses in chaos and fractals.
