Publisher: M & T Books 2000
Number of pages: 591
Chaos and fractals are new mathematical ideas that have revolutionized our view of the world. They have application in virtually every academic discipline. This book shows examples of the artistic beauty that can arise from very simple equations, and teaches the reader how to produce an endless variety of such patterns.

This book is designed as an introduction to Bayesian inference from a computational understanding-first, and mathematics-second, point of view. The book assumes no prior knowledge of Bayesian inference nor probabilistic programming.

Art gallery theorems and algorithms are so called because they relate to problems involving the visibility of geometrical shapes and their internal surfaces. This book explores generalizations and specializations in these areas.
The aim of this text is to develop an informal, light introduction to the world of fractal geometry and to inspire further research into the subject, whether your interest is of a pure, applied or even recreational nature.

Using examples from a broad base of computational tasks, including data processing and computational photography, the book introduces numerical modeling and algorithmic design from a practical standpoint and provides insight into theoretical tools.
