As math books go, this is pretty great. The illustrations really benefit from the author's sense of humor. The illustrations and diagrams frequently make use of smiley faces, words and other reassuringly non-abstract forms. I find it actually helps me learn cos it's less intimidating while still conveying the concepts. I guess it's easier to do this when you're dealing with 2d geometric objects, but in general hardly any math textbooks ever seem to show a sense of humor or any kind of personalit ...more

در دقایق طبیعت که باریک شویم می بینیم هیچ شکل هندسی منظمی مانند خط و دایره وجود ندارد و با اشکالی پیچیده و نا منظم مواجه هستیم. در اینجاست که هندسه نوین فراکتالی که بر اساس خاصیت خود تشابهی بنا شده راهگشاست در این کتاب ارزشمند مایکل بارنسلی با ارایه توپولوژی و مباحث دقیق ریاضی به کاربردهای شگفت انگیز تئوری فوق در فشرده سازی نصاویر و پیش بینی پدیده های آشوبناک مثل آب و هوا و بازار بورس اشاره می کند

This is a reasonably good introduction into how fractal mathematics can be used in everyday work.
The book is a bit challenging for the mathematically phobic. But, it is nevertheless readable and
understandable.

Sigh, good books on fractals are so rare. This is, unfortunately, typical.

Awesome illustrations. Combine ideas of dynamical systems (chaos) and computer graphing. Systematically organized as balance the mainstream of the modern math branch in such intro level reading.
