Abstract
The 14 chapters of this book cover the central ideas and concepts of chaos and fractals. They show how these topics relate to each other as well as to many other areas of mathematics and natural phenomena. The book can be understood by readers at almost any mathematical level and is supplemented in each chapter by sections that contain rigorous mathematics for those who want a more in-depth explanantion. A 'program of the chapter' provides a computer code for those who wish to explore the concepts graphically. 24 color pages, with 40 stunning images, go beyond mathematics to demonstrate the inherent visual beauty of fractals. 2 appendices provide the most recent advances in research, the first discusses the details and ideas of fractal image compression and the second explains the foundations and implications of multifractals
