The purpose of this book is to introduce the fundamental principles of fractals, chaos, and aspects of dynamical systems in the context of geological and geophysical problems. My goal is to introduce the fundamental concepts at the lowest level of mathematics that is consistent with the understanding and application of the concepts.

Now in a greatly expanded second edition, this book relates fractals and chaos to a variety of geological and geophysical applications and introduces the fundamental concepts of fractal geometry and chaotic by: This book introduces the fundamental concepts of fractal geometry and chaotic dynamics.

These concepts are then related to a variety of geological and geophysical problems, illustrating just what chaos theory and fractals really tell us and how they can be applied to the earth sciences.

The frequency-size distributions for islands, earthquakes, fragments, ore deposits, and oil fields often satisfy this relation.
