This book is based on a course called "Fractal Geometry," which has been taught in the School of Mathematics at Georgia Institute of Technology. Fractal geometry will make you see everything differently. There is danger in reading further. You risk the loss of your childhood vision of clouds, forests, galaxies, leaves, feathers, mountains, carpets, bricks, and much else. Never again will your interpretation of these things be quite the same. The observation by Mandelbrot (Mand 1982) of the existence of a "Geometr of Nature" as led us to think in a new scientific way about the edges of clouds, the profiles of the tops of forests on the horizon, and the intricate moving arrangement of the feathers on the wings of a bird as it flies. Geometry is concerned with making our spatial intuitions objective. This book is slightly cocked; it has many color plates that demonstrate many different equations. ; B&W and Color Photos and Drawings; 4to 9" - 12" tall; 396 pages
