More About This Textbook
Overview
Number theory, spectral geometry, and fractal geometry are interlinked in this indepth study of the vibrations of fractal strings; that is, onedimensional drums with fractal boundary. This second edition of Fractal Geometry, Complex Dimensions and Zeta Functions will appeal to students and researchers in number theory, fractal geometry, dynamical systems, spectral geometry, complex analysis, distribution theory, and mathematical physics. The significant studies and problems illuminated in this work may be used in a classroom setting at the graduate level.
Key Features include:
· The Riemann hypothesis is given a natural geometric reformulation in the context of vibrating fractal strings
· Complex dimensions of a fractal string are studied in detail, and used to understand the oscillations intrinsic to the corresponding fractal geometries and frequency spectra
· Explicit formulas are extended to apply to the geometric, spectral, and dynamical zeta functions associated with a fractal
· Examples of such explicit formulas include a Prime Orbit Theorem with error term for selfsimilar flows, and a geometric tube formula
· The method of Diophantine approximation is used to study selfsimilar strings and flows
· Analytical and geometric methods are used to obtain new results about the vertical distribution of zeros of numbertheoretic and other zeta functions
The unique viewpoint of this book culminates in the definition of fractality as the presence of nonreal complex dimensions. The final chapter (13) is new to the second edition and discusses several new topics, results obtained since the publication of the first edition, and suggestions for future developments in the field.
Review of the First Edition:
" The book is self contained, the material organized in chapters preceded by an introduction and finally there are some interesting applications of the theory presented. ...The book is very well written and organized and the subject is very interesting and actually has many applications."
—NicolaeAdrian Secelean, Zentralblatt

Editorial Reviews
From the Publisher
Review of the First Edition:"In this book the author encompasses a broad range of topics that connect many areas of mathematics, including fractal geometry, number theory, spectral geometry, dynamical systems, complex analysis, distribution theory and mathematical physics. The book is self containing, the material organized in chapters preceding by an introduction and finally there are some interesting applications of the theory presented. ...The book is very well written and organized and the subject is very interesting and actual and has many applications." — NicolaeAdrian Secelean for Zentralblatt MATH
"This highly original selfcontained book will appeal to geometers, fractalists, mathematical physicists and number theorists, as well as to graduate students in these fields and others interested in gaining insight into these rich areas either for its own sake or with a view to applications. They will find it a stimulating guide, well written in a clear and pleasant style." — Mathematical Reviews (Review of previous book by authors)
"It is the reviewera (TM)s opinion that the authors have succeeded in showing that the complex dimensions provide a very natural and unifying mathematical framework for investigating the oscillations in the geometry and the spectrum of a fractal string. The book is well written. The exposition is selfcontained, intelligent and well paced." — Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society (Review of previous book by authors)
"The new approach and results on the important problems illuminated in this work will appeal to researchers and graduate students in number theory, fractal geometry, dynamical systems, spectral geometry, and mathematical physics." —Simulation News Europe (Review of previous book by authors)
