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.
This is an incredibly interesting book. I can't quite remember how I originally stumbled upon fractals, but I have been highly interested in them for quite a while now. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Kyler Cook
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 7 months ago by KT
Mandelbrot... R.I.P. my friend... he was an angel sent from infinity to infinity and beyond... although he is gone from the known human world, Mandelbrot is a fractal of the... Read morePublished 7 months ago by Wquilliam
