The aim of this book is both to stimulate interest in fractal geometry and to be useful as a first text to those who use fractal geometry in their work. It contains many suggestions for experiments, and tends to rely on graphic examples, rather than swamping the reader with equations and symbols.

Fractal geometry is revolutionizing the descriptive mathematics of applied materials systems. Rather than presenting a mathematical treatise, Brian Kaye demonstrates the descriptive power of fractal geometry in describing materials ranging from Swiss cheese to pyrolytic graphite. The second edition of this successful book provides important literature coverage of the use of fractal geometry in all areas of science.From Book News:
Kaye walks readers through the nuts and bolts of applied fractal geometry and further enables them to discover where they can apply fractals in their own work. Writing from a practical point of view, he avoids the use of equations, but the volume is thoroughly illustrated with graphic examples. This completely updated paperback edition (1st ed., 1989) also provides up-to-date literature coverage of the use of fractal geometry in all areas of science. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc.
