The Fractal Geometry of Nature is a mathematics text. But buried in the deltas and lambdas and integrals, even a layperson can pick out and appreciate Mandelbrot's point: that somewhere in mathematics, there is an explanation for nature. It is not a coincidence that fractal math is so good at generating images of cliffs and shorelines and capillary beds.
I very much enjoyed reading this book. The math and science in it is fascinating, and even if you do not manage to understand all of it with all the details.Published 4 months ago by KT
