Overview
Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, and lightning does not travel in a straight line. The complexity of nature's shapes differs in kind, not merely degree, from that of the shapes of ordinary geometry. To describe such shapes, this author conceived and developed a new geometry, the geometry of fractal shapes. This book is based on his highly acclaimed earlier work, but has much broader and deeper coverage and more extensive illustrations.
