Hello,

Im looking for a book about fractals. I've allready seen some nice books but I dont really know what to choose. Im looking for a book with lots of information betwee 150 and 500 pages. And not too expensive (50Ç max). Which book(s) would you recommend me to get. Language isnt a problem but English would be the best I think.

i consider the 30 year old "Chaos" by james gleick as one of the best and well written introduction to fractal applications, discovery
although it is very old the base theory is correct and gives a damn good introduction

Ok, Thanks. That one looks good. Ill wait a bit more so that I can make a good choice. Maybe someone else knows something else. Than I can compare those to other books.

Ive been looking myself for a good book and this one was the best I found:

http://www.amazon.com/Fractal-Geometry-Mathematical-Foundations-Applications/dp/111994239X/ref=sr_1_12?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1412751278&sr=1-12&keywords=fractals

If you have a quick look at it it looks complicated but If you read it is easy to understand.

it is more technical, the other i recommendet is pure non-mathematical and deals with implications of chaos in real life wink perhaps you could make use of more than one wink

Im more looking for a technical book. I understand fractals in general but I want to know more about the technical part of fractals. Because I made some mistakes...  undecided I want to be able to be part of more discussions on technical parts on this forum.  smiley

I've got a copy of the second edition, it's pretty good - rigorous (with exercises to check your understanding) but with a friendly style.

I'm sorry for waking up this thread but I got myself another book:
https://m.bol.com/nl/p/the-chemistry-maths-book-2nd-edition/1001004006056667/

It not only fits with the other book it also relates to chemistry and physics which will probably for the next few years of studying.


Edit: although complex numbers and related matter can be found in it there aren't too many references to fractals in it. But it makes understanding fractals easier in different ways.

The excersises in the first few chapters are pretty easy. I might be able to work through a part of it.
