Fractals everywhere by M. F Barnsley( Book )

76 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is based on a course called 'Fractal Geometry' which has been taught in the School of Mathematics at Georgia Institute of Technology for two years. 'Fractals Everywhere' teaches the tools, methods, and theory of deterministic geometry. Ti is useful for describing specific objects and structures. Models are represented by succint 'formulas.' Once the formula is known, the model can be reproduced. we do not consider statistical geometry. The latter aims at discovering general statistical laws which govern families of similar-looking structures, such as all cumulus clouds, all maple leaves, or all mountains. In deterministic geometry, structures are defined, communicated, and analysed, with the aid of elementary transformations such as affine transformations, scalings, rotations, and congruences. A fractal set generally contains infinitely many points whose organization is so complicated that it is not possible to describe the set by specifying directly where each point in it lies. Instead, the set may be define by 'the relations between the pieces.' It is rather like describing the solar system by quoting the law of gravitation and stating the initial conditions. Everything follows from that. It appears always to be better to describe in terms of relationships."

Superfractals by M. F Barnsley( Book )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Superfractals is the long-awaited successor to Fractals Everywhere, in which the power and beauty of iterated function systems (IFS) were introduced and applied to producing startling and original images that reflect complex structures found, for example, in nature. This provoked the question of whether there is deeper connection among topology, geometry, IFS and codes, on one hand, and biology, DNA and protein development on the other. Now, 20 years later, Barnsley brings the story up to date by explaining how IFS have developed in order to address this issue."--Jacket

Fractals in multimedia by M. F Barnsley( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book should be useful to commercial and university researchers in the rapidly evolving field of digital imaging, specifically, chief information officers, professors, software engineers, and graduate students in the mathematical sciences. While much of the content is quite technical, it contains pointers to the state of the art and the future in fractal imaging."--Jacket
The desktop fractal design system by M. F Barnsley( )

37 editions published between 1989 and 1992 in 4 languages and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce logiciel présente une introduction à la géométrie fractale. S'adressant autant aux étudiants universitaires en science qu'aux professeurs, il aborde, d'une façon simple et agréable, les rudiments de la géométrie fractale. Le contenu est basé sur le livre de Michael Barnsley, "Fractals Everywhere". Le "Desktop Fractal Design System" expose la théorie IFS (Iterated Function Systems) et son application qui sous-tendent la géométrie fractale. Les deux algorithmes "Chaos Game Algorithm" et "Escape-Time Algorithm" y sont présentés

"Examines the computational paradigms being used to model human consciousness and to quantify reality, from Euclidean geometry to fractal transform algorithms. Oxford mathematician Sir Roger Penrose, quantum physicist Reverend John Polkinghorne, compression technology expert Michael Barnsley, and physiologist Horace Barlow seek to understand how the brain functions--and grope for evidence of a guiding force ... Computer graphics enhance this exploration of inner and outer space"--Container label

Fractals, wavelets, and their applications : contributions from the international conference and workshop on fractals and wavelets by Christoph Bandt( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fractals and wavelets are emerging areas of mathematics with many common factors which can be used to develop new technologies. This volume contains the selected contributions from the lectures and plenary and invited talks given at the International Workshop and Conference on Fractals and Wavelets held at Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology, India from November 9-12, 2013. Written by experts, the contributions hope to inspire and motivate researchers working in this area. They provide more insight into the areas of fractals, self similarity, iterated function systems, wavelets and the applications of both fractals and wavelets. This volume will be useful for the beginners as well as experts in the fields of fractals and wavelets

Chaos and fractals : the mathematics behind the computer graphics by Robert L Devaney( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The terms chaos and fractals have received widespread attention in recent years. The alluring computer graphics images associated with these terms have heightened interest among scientists in these ideas. This volume contains the introductory survey lectures delivered in the American Mathematical Society Short Course, Chaos and Fractals: The Mathematics Behind the Computer Graphics, on August 6-7, 1988, given in conjunction with the AMS Centennial Meeting in Providence, Rhode Island. In his overview, Robert L. Devaney introduces such key topics as hyperbolicity, the period doubling route to chaos, chaotic dynamics, symbolic dynamics and the horseshoe, and the appearance of fractals as the chaotic set for a dynamical system. Linda Keen and Bodil Branner discuss the Mandelbrot set and Julia sets associated to the complex quadratic family z -> z² + c. Kathleen T. Alligood, James A. Yorke, and Philip J. Holmes discuss some of these topics in higher dimensional settings, including the Smale horseshoe and strange attractors. Jenny Harrison and Michael F. Barnsley give an overview of fractal geometry and its applications. -- from dust jacket
