Chaos and Fractals : New Frontiers of Science
(2nd ed. 2004. Softcover reprint of the original 2n)
The fourteen chapters of this book cover the central ideas and concepts of chaos and fractals as well as many related topics including: the Mandelbrot set, Julia sets, cellular automata, L-systems, percolation and strange attractors.
This new edition has been thoroughly revised throughout.
The appendices of the original edition were taken out since more recent publications cover this material in more depth.
Instead of the focussed computer programs in BASIC, the authors provide 10 interactive JAVA-applets for this second edition.
