Chaos and fractals : new frontiers of science by Heinz-Otto Peitgen ( Book )
35 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The fourteen chapters of this book cover the central ideas and concepts of chaos and fractals as well as many related topics including: the Mandelbrot set, Julia sets, cellular automata, L-systems, percolation and strange attractors. This new edition has been thoroughly revised throughout. The appendices of the original edition were taken out since more recent publications cover this material in more depth. Instead of the focused computer programs in BASIC, the authors provide 10 interactive JAVA-applets for this second edition
The beauty of fractals : images of complex dynamical systems by Heinz-Otto Peitgen ( Book )
19 editions published between 1986 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 1,874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The authors present an unusual attempt to publicize the field of Complex Dynamics, an exciting mathematical discipline of respectable tradition that recently sprang into new life under the impact of modern computer graphics. Where previous generations of scientists had to develop their own inner eye to perceive the abstract aesthetics of their work, the astounding pictures assembled here invite the reader to share in a new mathematical experience, to revel in the charm of fractal frontiers

Fractals for the classroom by Heinz-Otto Peitgen ( Book )
23 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fractals for the Classroom breaks new ground as it brings an exciting branch of mathematics into the classroom. The book is a collection of independent chapters on the major concepts related to the science and mathematics of fractals. Written at the mathematical level of an advanced secondary student, Fractals for the Classroom includes many fascinating insights for the classroom teacher and integrates illustrations from a wide variety of applications with an enjoyable text to help bring the concepts alive and make them understandable to the average reader. This book will have a tremendous impact upon teachers, students, and the mathematics education of the general public. With the forthcoming companion materials, including four books on strategic classroom activities and lessons with interactive computer software, this package will be unparalleled

Fractals for the classroom : strategic activities by Heinz-Otto Peitgen ( Book )
15 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This first volume of strategic activities is designed to develop through a hands-on approach, a basic mathematical understanding and appreciation of fractals. The concepts presented on fractals include self-similarity, the chaos game, and complexity as it relates to fractal dimension. These strategic activities have been developed from a sound instructional base, stressing the connections to the contemporary curriculums recommended in the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics. Where appropriate the activities take advantage of the technological power of the graphics calculator. These activites make excellent extensions to many of the topics that are already taught in the current curriculum. Together, they can be used as a complete unit or as the beginning for a semester course on fractals
