Chaos and Fractals: New Frontiers of Science

Heinz-Otto Peitgen, Hartmut Jürgens, Dietmar Saupe

The core principles and concepts of chaos and fractals, along with many other related topics, are discussed in detail throughout this book’s fourteen chapters. These topics include the Mandelbrot set, Julia sets, cellular automata, L-systems, percolation, and weird attractors, to name a few. This brand new edition has been updated throughout with many revisions. Since more recent books address this subject matter in greater depth, the appendices included in the initial version have been removed. In this second edition, the authors have provided ten interactive JAVA applets rather than ten focused computer programs written in BASIC.
