**Fractal Geometry**

by Michael Frame, Benoit Mandelbrot, Nial Neger

**Publisher**: Yale University 2009**Number of pages**: 323

**Description**:

Fractal geometry is a new way of looking at the world. We have been surrounded by natural patterns, unsuspected but easily recognized after only an hour's training. This is a collection of pages meant to support a first course in fractal geometry for students without especially strong mathematical preparation, or any particular interest in science. Each of the topics contains examples of fractals in the arts, humanities, or social sciences.
