## Book description

Revised and updated, this second edition provides an accessible introduction to both chaotic dynamics and fractal geometry for readers with a calculus background. This edition contains new and expanded material on fractals that illustrates how to obtain computer renderings of them and covers Julia and Mandelbrot sets. It also includes a substantial number of new exercises at the end of each section and MATLAB programs in the appendix, with selected solutions at the back of the book.
