Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is amazing. It should be a requisite book of anybody who is interested in Fractals and Chaos Theory, whether they be a student in High School or an expert in rigorous mathematics. The book jumps right to the important points and conclusions of this beautiful area of mathematics, and develops intuition without resorting to mathematical rigor, which is a boon to any beginner.

This book makes a solid introduction to Fractals and Chaos Theory, and should allow any motivated student in this area to later jump to more mathematically/technically rigorous textbooks later. For students in biological and medical sciences, whom may only have limited mathematical training compared to students of other disciplines (Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, etc..), this should be a required book to read. More and more current research is indicating that biological systems - Immune system, Heart Dynamics, Vision - are fundamentally ruled and described by chaos and fractal based processes. The book goes over several biological applications, and does a great job of calibrating the student to the promise that this area of mathematics will revolutionize our understanding of biology and medicine in addition to highlighting specific open research questions to help focus the thoughts of the motivated student.

Overall, get this book ASAP!!!!!
