Fractal Functions, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets is the first systematic exposition of the theory of fractal surfaces, a natural outgrowth of fractal sets and fractal functions. It is also the first treatment to bring these general considerations to bear on the burgeoning field of wavelets. The text is based on Massopusts work on and contributions to the theory of fractal functions, and the author uses a number of tools--including analysis, topology, algebra, and probability theory--to introduce readers to this new subject. Though much of the material presented in this book is relatively current (developed in the past decade by the author and his colleagues) and fairly specialized, an informative background is provided for those

* First systematic treatment of fractal surfaces
* Links fractals and wavelets
* Provides background for those entering the field
* Contains color insert

Industry Reviews

"Massopust provides the basic theory and results from manipulating fractal functions and surfaces, and discusses future directions and applications to wavelet theory and fractal dynamics...Recommended." --D.E. Bentil,University of Massachusetts at Amherst
