"As amazing because the book's extensive sweep is the author's good-natured, funny presentation. The keen reader can relax and revel in an all-encompassing, irrepressibly enthusiastic travel, starting from psycho physics to quasicrystals, from playing techniques to Bach concertos, from the development of Cantor units to the layout of live performance halls." — Physics Today 
"Such a richness of issues and striking elegance of illustrations!" — Mathematics Magazine
 "An inviting exposition for a literate yet no longer hugely clinical audience." — American Mathematical Monthly
This fascinating ebook explores the connections among chaos idea, physics, biology, and arithmetic. Its award-winning special effects, optical illusions, and video games illustrate the concept that of self-similarity, a standard estate of fractals. writer Manfred Schroeder — hailed via Publishers Weekly as a latest Lewis Carroll — conveys memorable insights within the kind of puns and puzzles that relate summary arithmetic to daily experience.
Excellent leisure for readers with a grab of algebra and a few calculus, this e-book types an exceptional university-level advent to fractal math. 8 pages of colour photographs make clear the textual content, in addition to various black-and-white illustrations.
