I would have loved it when I was twelve, but it is hard to judge peirgen well it would work for ordinary school students or mathematics-averse university students: One of them, Hermann Flaschka, deserves to be thanked in particular for his suggestions and improvements.
Feldman’s Chaos and Fractals: They also look at cellular automata, Pascal’s Triangle, and some number theory.
Show More Show Less. This book is a good and easy to read introduction to Chaos Theory and the Fractal Geometry that illustrates it. An Illustrated Course Paul S.
Jan 27, Charles Frode rated it it was amazing. The three textbooks I discuss here cover broadly similar material, but they are pitched at different levels and take rather different approaches, emphasizing, roughly, exposition starting from elementary foundations, applications in the physical sciences, and perspectives from computational and applied mathematics.
Discusses many topics which can be explored independently. Peitgen has been appointed to chairs at several German and American universities and has served as a visiting professor at universities in Belgium, Brazil, Canada, the United States, Mexico and Peiygen.
Want to Read saving…. Turning to dynamics, New Frontiers of Science uses some simple transformations to introduce sensitivity to initial conditions, mixing and periodic orbits, and ergodicity, before proceeding to the quadratic iterator, period-doubling, the Feigenbaum point, intermittency, and paths to chaos. This leads naturally to chaos game algorithms, ways of growing fractals from simple generators using recursion, and the use of randomness in constructing fractals, notably with Brownian motion and landscapes.

Vic Dillahay rated it really liked it Jun 27, The mathematics of this theory are complicated, but Peitgen introduces the basic concepts of chaos theory in a way that the non-sophisticated mathematician can understand.
Anna Peitfen rated it really liked it Feb 17, Aml rated it it was amazing Oct 19, There fractalss a little background history and philosophy, notably in a preface by Feigenbaum and an introduction, and occasional discussion of applications, such as using the Hilbert curve for dithering, but New Frontiers of Science remains focused on the mathematics.
About this product Synopsis For almost 10 years, chaos and fractals have been riding a wave that has enveloped many areas of mathematics and the natural sciences in its power, creativity, and expanse, and has captured the attention fraftals enthusiasm of a worldwide lay audience.
