Chaos and Fractals, by Denny Gulick, Second Edition, CRC Press (2015).
Available from the UW Bookstore. The first edition of this book was
used in previous offerings of this course and should be sufficient
for this offering.
"Generalized fractal transforms, contractive mappings and
associated inverse problems"
Talk given by ERV in the Fractal
Geometry Seminar, Wednesday, January 27, 2016, Faculty
of Mathematics, UW. This talk is
a rather concentrated summary of some of the research done
by our "Waterloo Fractal Analysis and Coding Project" group.
Some of the slides from this talk -- in particular those
concerned with the "inverse problem" of approximation by IFS
and IFS-type methods -- were presented in the final lecture
of the course.
