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.
