Overview

This book is concerned with the formation of complex, disorderly patterns under far from equilibrium conditions. The application of fractal geomentry and scaling concepts to a broad range of phenomena is presented with emphasis on practical problems and pitfalls. The author illustrates how simple concepts and theoretical methods can be used to obtain answers to problems that would be difficult to address using other approaches. The techniques and topics discussed in this book are relevant to many areas of science and technology.
