About

This Fractal Geometry programme delivered by The Open University UK deals with the theory of fractals and their geometry, and looks at examples to which the theory can be applied.

Overview

The theory of fractal geometry provides a general framework for the study of sets that had been thought to be exceptional oddities. This is an active area of research and both the theory and applications of fractal geometry are still being developed.

You will learn

Successful study of this Fractal Geometry programme delivered by The Open University UK  should enhance your skills in understanding complex mathematical texts, constructing solutions to problems logically and communicating mathematical ideas clearly.

Programme Structure

The module is based on the set book Fractal Geometry: Mathematical Foundations and Applications (Third edition) by K. J. Falconer (Wiley), which is in two parts.

  • Part I has eight chapters dealing with the general theory of fractals and their geometry.

  • Part II looks at examples of fractals to which the theory of Part I can be applied. These examples are drawn from a wide variety of areas of mathematics and physics.
