Fractals Everywhere, Second Edition covers the fundamental approach to fractal geometry through iterated function systems. This chapter text is based on a course called "Fractal Geometry", which has been taught in the School of Mathematics at the Georgia Institute of Technology. After a brief introduction to the subject, this book goes on dealing with the concepts and principles of spaces, contraction mappings, fractal construction, and the chaotic dynamics on fractals. Other chapters discuss fractal dimension and interpolation, the Julia sets, parameter spaces, and the Mandelbrot sets. The remaining chapters examine the measures on fractals and the practical application of recurrent iterated function systems.

Non-Euclidean, Riemannian geometry is useful for describing the curved space of relativistic physics, but not for modeling the ruggedness of elephant skin or the intricate texture of marble. In Chapter 2, Bamsley introduces the basic topological ideas to discuss subsets in the plane. Such sets are the most important sets for the discussion of the book, since it is mainly focused on images of objects that are clearly two-dimensional. Chapter 3 deals with transformations of metric spaces, especially with affine and Mobius transformations in the plane.

Probably the best known of those recipes is the so-called chaos game, which has applications in computer graphics and was also used, for example, to study the sequential structure of base pairs in DNA. Several other algorithms are also presented and used to construct fractal leaves, trees, and other natural-looking objects.

One can see a tremendous possibility for applications of this compressed description of complex patterns for classification of biological morphologies. With its help one can solve the inverse problem of IFS: Given any image i.

Since the resulting IFS would be defined by only a few parameters, it is a very efficient way to characterize complicated natural patterns like leaves, roots, and trees.

Complicated fractal patterns can also be constructed by cellular automata. There one frequently faces the problem of small changes in the automaton rules completely changing the overall pattern. With IFS, however, Barnsley shows under which conditions fractals depend continuously on the parameters that define them. This robustness of the structures is an extremely valuable property for realistic applications, illustrated with examples like moving and deforming cloud structures.

In the chapter on dynamics on fractals, the author connects the concept of chaotic motion with the fractal geometry of attracting sets in the plane.

With the help of these addresses, Barnsley constructs the dynamics on the fractal by indicating in which sequence addresses are visited. Thus he can prove under what conditions the dynamics are indeed chaotic.

In the same chapter Barnsley also discusses the frequently used question about numerical accuracy and meaningfulness of computed orbits. This concept allows us to discriminate fractal from Euclidean objects in that the former have noninteger values.

It also allows us to order fractals according to their dimensional value such that a fractal of dimension 1. In that cast fractal dimensions can serve to distinguish between systems of different dimensionality.

Several examples of the analysis of fractals in the plane are given, among them a painting of Romeo and Juliet. In Chapter 6 another application of the new fractal geometry of natural objects is discussed. Where masons and engineers have straight-edges and compasses to construct their man-made objects, these Euclidean tools are not too helpful in a fractal environment.

To measure a rugged surface it might be more appropriate to use a fractal ruler instead.

The reader can learn how to efficiently interpolate between a complicated distribution of points in the plant with the help of fractal curves. Then one can use the interpolation fractal to measure its dimension and thus get some quantitative measure not the length of a coastline that would always be infinite but of its approximate fractal dimension.

In this as well as in previous chapters Barnsley provides not only examples and illustrations but also explicit listings of computer codes with which one can practice the theoretical material of the book. These have been presented to a wide audience with decorative computer images in the books by Mandelbrot and especially by Peitgen and his collaborators. Probably because of this, Barnsley seems not to invest too much effort to compete with the computer graphical fireworks of the above-mentioned books.

As scientists we often overlook the artistic sophistication that it takes to make scientifically interesting graphics also visually attractive for nonscientists. In particular, the image on the cover lacks definition and detail. The use of color throughout the book does not do justice to the visual potential of the images.
