Item description for Discovery of Cosmic Fractals by Yurij Baryshev & Pekka Teerikorpi...

This is the first book to present the fascinating new results on the largest fractal structures in the universe. It guides the reader, in a simple way, to the frontiers of astronomy, explaining how fractals appear in cosmic physics, from our solar system to the megafractals in deep space. It also offers a personal view of the history of the idea of self-similarity and of cosmological principles, from Plato's ideal architecture of the heavens to Mandelbrot's fractals in the modern physical cosmos. In addition, this invaluable book presents the great fractal debate in astronomy (after Luciano Pietronero's first fractal analysis of the galaxy universe), which illustrates how new concepts and deeper observations reveal unexpected aspects of Nature.

Reviews - What do customers think about Discovery of Cosmic Fractals?

Fractals Begin to Come of Age  Apr 24, 2006
I am sure that most of us have been intrigued and inspired by those remarkable geometric shapes called fractals. It is now 45 years since the Polish-born French mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot introduced the world to fractal geometry, the mathematical study of those beautiful and bizarre structures that have become the staple of much modern art and adorn millions of computer screens. Although the actual word "fractal" first made its appearance in 1975.

Fractals are objects that are rough or irregular, but can be broken down into parts. And each part is similar to the original object.

I have been following the development of fractal theory for the last thirty years, not as a mathematician or artist, but as someone who has had a deep intuition that these objects have deep significance for our understanding of many physical and biological dynamics.

This well-written book begins with a lengthy historical review of basic concepts in astronomy and cosmogony. Astronomy was one of those all-consuming hobbies that stayed with me throughout early adolescence, so it was good to return to those heady days.

But then we get into the real meat of the book: the discovery of the largest fractal structures in the universe, and an explanation about how fractals appear in cosmic physics, from our solar system all the way to the mega-fractals in deep space. These fractals structures appear to provide powerful new evidence for the emerging theories of interaction, implying that everything in the Universe is interconnected, and no one thing can be examined without considering its context in time and space.

This is a book that could be read with pleasure by anyone interested in alternative ways of viewing our Universe. These cosmic fractals may turn out to have considerable practical importance for us.

I recommend this to anyone interested in learning more about some of the cutting edge science that is helping inform us about the nature of physical reality.
The book Discovery of Cosmic Fractals by Yurij Baryshev and Pekka Teerikorpi describes the yet unexplored fractal structure of the universe, which is hard to handle in the big bang theory. The idea of self-similarity is much deeper than it looks, suggesting a universe made of self-defined and hence fractal (self-similar) 3D spiral interactions as it is argued in the book THEORY OF INTERACTION The Simplest Explanation of Everything by Eugene Savov. The comic fractals can be viewed as just another convincing confirmation of the emerging theory of interaction. These two books and also James Gleick's CHAOS Making a New Science are harbingers of a qualitatively new, singularity free and complete understanding of the universe. That is why I highly recommend these essential books to everybody interested in the puzzles of nature.
