The author describes in detail the dynamic aspects of transport phenomena in the field of fractals. Intended for students of physics and chemistry in their second or third year, this book is also addressed to researchers and engineers interested in the trends of contemporary physics as they relate to . The facts about Pollock’s fractals. Author John Briggs published a book featuring the first observation that Jackson Pollock’s poured paintings have the appearance of fractal patterns (Fractals, Touchstone Publishers, ) (Physics Today, June edition, , ).

In Fractals: The Patterns of Chaos, science writer John Briggs uses over illustrations to clearly explain the significance — and more importantly, the beauty — of fractals. He describes how fractals were discovered, how they are formed, .

The remaining chapters examine the measures on fractals and the practical application of recurrent iterated function systems. This book will prove useful to both undergraduate and graduate students from many disciplines, including mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, psychology, mechanical, electrical, and aerospace engineering, computer. Chaos — the study of the uncontainable, the unpredictable, the messy. Fractals — fantastic curves and surfaces unlike anything ever seen in mathematics before. Dimension — a way to bring order to chaos and measure to madness. One can devote an academic lifetime to these topics, but this introduction makes them as easy to understand as the straight line and the parabola.

He or she will find much to enjoy and think about between the covers of this unique book. Critical Acclaim for Fractals, Chaos, Power Laws:Cited by: The concepts of self-similarity and scale invariance have arisen independently in several areas.

One is the study of the critical properties of phase transitions; another is fractal geometry, which involves the concept of (non-integer) fractal dimension. These two areas have now come together, and their methods have extended to various fields of physics.

In physical cosmology, fractal cosmology is a set of minority cosmological theories which state that the distribution of matter in the Universe, or the structure of the universe itself, is a fractal across a wide range of scales (see also: multifractal system).More generally, it relates to the usage or appearance of fractals in the study of the universe and matter.
