Fractals, Chaos, Power Laws: Minutes from an Infinite Paradise, reprinted by Dover in , is a feast for the reader with a grasp of algebra and some calculus. He or she will find much to enjoy and think about between the covers of this unique book. Critical Acclaim for Fractals, Chaos, Power Laws:Cited by:   The concepts of self-similarity and scale invariance have arisen independently in several areas. One is the study of the critical properties of phase transitions; another is fractal geometry, which involves the concept of (non-integer) fractal dimension. These two areas have now come together, and their methods have extended to various fields of physics. In physical cosmology, fractal cosmology is a set of minority cosmological theories which state that the distribution of matter in the Universe, or the structure of the universe itself, is a fractal across a wide range of scales (see also: multifractal system).More generally, it relates to the usage or appearance of fractals in the study of the universe and matter.

Fractals in the Natural Sciences. Princeton, New Jersey: Princeton University Press. This book contains a set of 64 papers on biology, chemistry, geology and physics showing how fractals apply in a wide variety of scientific applications. This book assumes you already understand fractal geometry. Gamow, G. “Modern Cosmology.”. This is somewhat physics oriented book. If you are interested in mathematica foundations, "Fractal Geometry: Mathematical Foundations and Applications" by Kenneth Falconer is a good start.

  Now in a greatly expanded second edition, this book relates fractals and chaos to a variety of geological and geophysical applications and introduces the fundamental concepts of fractal geometry and chaotic dynamics. In this new edition, Turcotte expands coverage of self-organized criticality and includes statistics and time series to provide a broad background for the by: Fractal analysis has entered a new era. The applications to different areas of knowledge have been surprising. Let us begin with the fractional calculus-fractal geometry relationship, which allows for modeling with extreme precision of phenomena such as diffusion in porous media with fractional partial differential equations in fractal objects.
