Fractals A Graphic Guide 13 febbraio 2011
Di JB Mahlon - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I love this book! For an artist and non-mathematician who is intensely interested in fractals, it is indispensable. It is clear, easy to refer to and portable. The graphics are simple, charming and humorous. Even though I now understand most of the concepts, it is great if I want to quickly refresh my understanding of a concept.

Well Done - But Not Simple 26 dicembre 2011
Di Brian Horblit - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Introducing Fractals - A Graphic Guide is quite well done. To truly understand fractals, however, takes quite a bit of mathematical background. The authors do an excellent job of trying to ease the reader into the required math, but the average reader without much higher math background likely will not really understand some of the material. I have an extensive background in math (though not exercised much in the last 20 years), and I still felt a tad frustrated that I was not sure I really "got it" for some of the concepts. Do I *really* understand what an attractor or repellor is? Or their significance? I think so - but do I?

So if you want to understand the basic ideas behind fractals, and their significance, this is a decent intro. If you are looking for a quick, easy read, that won't require much thinking to get through, this might not be it. The nature of the material might make finding such a book a tall order.

A new place to get started 30 aprile 2011

This is definitely a series I will go back to for introductions to other topics. The presentation was great. The graphics were well done. It really did feel like an introduction with ideas about all kinds of things to look at about fractals. I think it would be especially useful in a high school classroom library.
I liked the last half of the book much more than the first half 10 settembre 2012
Di Metallurgist - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I liked some sections of this book, but felt that others needed much more amplification, so on balance I could only give the book three stars. In my opinion, much of the first half of the book would have been greatly improved by eliminating at least half of the drawings and replacing them with more text. Every page of the book contains at least one illustration, but I found that too many were of little of no help in explaining the concepts being discussed. Most were drawings of mathematicians, which while interesting did little to explain fractals and I found them to be more of a distraction than help. In my opinion, the ideas discussed in the first half of the book are covered too briefly for a general reader to fully understand the material. For instance, I do not see how someone without an education in advanced mathematics would get very much from the two pages allotted to Gregor Cantor's ideas concerning the mathematics of a continuum, or could really understand Julia sets from the incomplete information given in this book. There were, however, other sections, such as the one that defined fractional dimensions that I found to be very helpful and clear.

The last half of the book deals with a general discussion of the applications of fractals, and I found it to be interesting and quite illuminating. It covers applications ranging from biology, and physics, to art, music and even finance. I found illustrations to be very helpful here, and they did help to illuminate the wide-ranging application of fractals.

If a general reader is willing to accept that they really do not understand exactly what is being discussed, but are more interested in possible applications, then they would likely rate the book higher than 3 stars, I just was expecting more. I found that Stewart's "Does God Play Dice?" to do a much better job of explaining the concepts covered in this book.
uneven, however still very good 7 marzo 2013
Di Juan Soto - Pubblicato su

Uneven coverage, needed more amplification up front, but still a very good book. I liked the drawings, however they could have been related to the text flow better. The uses of fractals in the latter half or so was very useful.
