Product Description

Book Description

This 1989 book is about chaos, fractals and complex dynamics, and is addressed to all people who have some familiarity with computers and enjoy using them. The mathematics has been kept simple, with few formulae, yet the reader is introduced to and can learn about an area of current scientific research which was scarcely possible before the availability of computers.

First Sentence
The story which today so fascinates researchers, and which is associated with chaos theory and experimental mathematics, came to our attention around 1983 in Bremen. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
Much more code based than other fractal books, theres a few thousand lines of PASCAL in here to do everything from landscapes to julia etc. A little dated in its colouring algorithms (all greyscale or b&w). Makes a great supplement to one of the fractal bibles (Mandelbrot, Barnsley or Peitgen). I enjoyed the graftal and l-system sections, this book definitely stands out from the rest (not just because it has a bright orange cover :) ).

I'm happy to have found a book about fractal geometry that takes programming into account. The combination of theory and application is welcome.
