The core principles and concepts of chaos and fractals are covered in the book’s fourteen chapters, along with a wide range of related subjects such as the Mandelbrot set, Julia sets, cellular automata, L-systems, percolation, and weird attractors. This new edition has undergone extensive revisions. Since more subsequent books cover this information in-depth, the original edition’s appendices were removed. For this second edition, the writers supply ten interactive JAVA applets rather than the targeted computer applications in BASIC.
