Michael F. Nature abounds with examples of fractal patterns - images and phenomena that. exhibit self similarity over a wide range of length scales. Michael Barnsley has devoted. a large part of his career figuring out ways to model these patterns by means of fractal. The absolute authority on applications of fractals to image compression, he holds. In Superfractals he further develops the theory. and introduces new concepts, culminating with superfractals, that let one describe whole.

This volume is the second edition of the highly successful Fractals Everywhere. The Focus of this text is how fractal geometry can be used to model real objects in the physical world.

This edition of Fractals Everywhere is the most up-to-date fractal textbook available today.

I really enjoyed the author's style. It is not a typical mathematical book. So if you are into strict formal mathematics this is not for you. The author has deep understanding of fractals and he is an expert in Iterated Function Systems (IFS). The shadow theorem is one of the biggest hits on this book.
What I particularly like from this book is the illustrations. They let you understand fractals intuitively. It is definitely an ideal book for engineers. Try also his other more advanced book SuperFractals
The only part of the book that is not very well developed is chaos, although the "chaotic dance" presented on the book is good starting point

Man, this got way too deep, way too fast. I have some algebra, some statistical analysis, some calc... This just took off running and left me in the dust. I was "fooled" by the "first course" title?

<clip> In fractal geometry we are concerned with the structure of subsets of various very simple "geometrical" spaces. Such a space is denoted by X. It is the space on which we think of drawing our fractals; it is the place where fractals live. What is a fractal? For us, for now, it is just a subset of a space. Whereas the space is simple, the fractal subset may be geometrically complicated.</clip>

So, why is *this* a fractal, but, *That*'s just a recursive function? Idunno, and I guess that I won't until I find another book?

This is a beautiful book. LOTs of graphics, TONs of information, but not for me.

Barnsley's book has a shortcoming common to many math text books -- it's poorly written. Barnsely's writing style is superfluous and rambling. What I learned from this book was in spite of Barnsley's writing, not because of it.

Furthermore, the book's illustrations are substandard. There are over five different fonts used in illustrations (including hand written text). This leads to confusion when you're unsure if the text in Barnsley's illustrations is referring to Greek letters or the conventional alphabet. Another shortcoming is that Barnsley intermingles end of chapter exercises with new concepts. You may have problems 1.1 to 1.5 reviewing what you've already learned, and then problem 1.6 introduces completely new material. This is a problem throughout the book, as important concepts are introduced in exercises or otherwise illogical locations.

On the positive side, solutions to most exercises are presented at the end of the book. Overall the book was useful, but learning the material was unnecessarily difficult due to the book's shortcomings.

Great!

so inexpensive - great for my son. He was out in Arizona at the time - and I mailed this directly to him - he was thrilled to receive this and used it for a class. Thanks.

When I started to read it could not swallow it dogmatically, then years brought me here, recurrently going back to the puzzle. Just one recommendation, be sure to understand Real Analysis , Functional Analysis (Contraction Mapping), some Topology, you should be fine. This book is written with brutal (yet delicate) math strokes of talent and passion for math, just like the Van Gogh's painting (on the side). If you like this computer stuff, there are by now some good free tutorial videos on the cloud, particularly those of Ole Christensen at DTU dealing with Applied functional analysis and Wavelets in normed vector spaces i.e.. Beware, this is not an easy book, I would say antipedagogic, the author presumes you are at least real analysis - literate.

This book was written by a regarded expert in the fields of digital image processing and data compression, and illustrates well how some "abstract" mathematical concepts can be applied successfully to such purposes.
However, it is evident that it was written in a rush, and the results can be seen. I have found a lot of typographic mistakes, errors in the exercises, and even errors in some of its mathematical proofs. Also, the author pays almost no attention to the fundamental concept of fractal geometry: the fractal dimension.
I read this book because I needed a strong background in fractal geometry to write my Bachelor's thesis, but got dissapointed because of its mathematical defficiencies, and eventually decided to move to better sources on the subject.
Please check my other reviews in my member page (just click on my name above).
This is NOT a first course for anyone except those very, very well versed in mathematical topology. Even more complicated than Benoit Mandelbrot's book. Easy to get lost very quickly and drown in the math.
