The Artful Universe ExpandedOur love of art, writes John Barrow, is the end product of millions of years of evolution. How we react to a beautiful painting or symphony draws upon instincts laid down long before humans existed. Now, in this enhanced edition of the highly popular The Artful Universe, Barrow further explores the close ties between our aesthetic appreciation and...     Fractal Geometry: Mathematical Foundations and ApplicationsAn accessible introduction to fractals, useful as a text or reference. Part I is concerned with the general theory of fractals and their geometry, covering dimensions and their methods of calculation, plus the local form of fractals and their projections and intersections. Part II contains examples of fractals drawn from a wide variety of areas in... 

SuperFractalsSuperFractals is the longawaited successor to Fractals Everywhere, in which the power and beauty of Iterated Function Systems 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 a deeper connection between topology,...   A Passion for Mathematics: Numbers, Puzzles, Madness, Religion, and the Quest for Reality
A Passion for Mathematics is an educational, entertaining trip through the curiosities of the math world, blending an eclectic mix of history, biography, philosophy, number theory, geometry, probability, huge numbers, and mindbending problems into a delightfully compelling collection that is sure to please math buffs, students, and...

The Fractal Geometry of NatureImagine an equilateral triangle. Now, imagine smaller equilateral triangles perched in the center of each side of the original triangleyou have a Star of David. Now, place still smaller equilateral triangles in the center of each of the star's 12 sides. Repeat this process infinitely and you have a Koch snowflake, a mindbending geometric...   The Fractal Structure of Data Reference: Applications to the Memory HierarchyFor purposes of understanding its performance, a computer system is traditionally viewed as a processor coupled to one or more disk storage devices, and driven by externally generated requests (typically called transactions). Over the past several decades, very powerful techniques have become available to the performance analyst attempting to...   Topics in Mathematical Analysis (Series on Analysis, Applications and Computation)This volume consists of a series of lecture notes on mathematical analysis. The contributors have been selected on the basis of both their outstanding scientific level and their clarity of exposition. Thus, the present collection is particularly suited to young researchers and graduate students. Through this volume, the editors intend to provide... 

A Nonlinear Dynamics Perspective of Wolfram's New Kind of Science
Volume IV continues the author's odyssey on lD cellular automata as chronicled in Volumes I, II and III, by uncovering a novel quasiergodicity phenomenon involving orbits meandering among omegalimit orbits of complex (group 5) and hyper (group 6) Bernoulli rules. This discovery is embellished with analytical formulas characterizing the...   Grammatical Picture Generation: A TreeBased ApproachThis book introduces the reader to the notions, the techniques, and the theory of grammatical picture generation, a research field focusing on formal systems that describe sets of pictures by means of syntactic rules. The book presents important types of picture generators, using a treebased approach to stress their common algorithmic basis, the...   Electrochemistry of Porous MaterialsPorous materials continue to attract considerable attention because of their wide variety of scientific and technological applications, such as catalysis, shape and sizeselective absorption and adsorption, gas storage, and electrode materials. Both research and applications of porous materials—via electroanalysis, electrosynthesis,...
