Multi-fractal patterns occur widely in nature. In developing new algorithms to determine multi-fractal spectra of experimental data I am lead to the conclusion that generalised dimensions Dq of order
Image Processing of Finite Size Rat Retinal Ganglion Cells Using Multifractal and Local Connected Fractal Analysis
Three methods were applied to elucidate the variation within 16 rat retinal ganglion cells: local connected fractal dimension (LCFD), mass-radius (MR) and maximum likelihood multifractal (MLM) analyses, concluding that the latter method warrants further attention as it may improve results in other application areas.

The set of indicators characterizing the data sample properties from the unified position based on the fractal analysis principles and the methods of sample fractal dimension determining are proposed and can be used to solve the problem of data dimensionality reduction.
Using fractals and power laws to predict the location of mineral deposits
Around the world the mineral exploration industry is interested in getting that small increase in probability measure on the earth's surface of where the next large undiscovered deposit might be
The conducted experiments confirmed the operability of the proposed mathematical support and allow recommending it for use in practice for solving the problems of model building by the precedents.
Chaos theory in chemistry and chemometrics: a review
Since the initial development of chaos theory and corollary concepts such as the strange attractor and fractal dimensionality, there has been a nontrivial effort to apply these concepts to the
Soil Variability Assessment with Fractal Techniques
Understanding soil variability becomes imperative as the management tools become more sophisticated and soil uses become more multifaceted. The importance of spatial and temporal variations in soil
Tumor Growth in the Brain: Complexity and Fractality
Emphasis is done on scaling analysis techniques applicable to multifractal systems, proposing new descriptors to advance the understanding of tumor growth dynamics in brain, to develop innovative practical growth models for therapy simulation and optimization, drug delivery, and the evaluation of related neurological disorders.


Estimation of correlation and other fractal dimensions is a favored approach for investigating whether time series or other dynamical data may be produced by nonlinear deterministic systems. The
Multifractal analysis of the galaxy distribution: Reliability of results from finite data sets.
It is found that the presently available galaxy samples can be usefully employed to trace the scaling properties generated by nonlinear clustering, and the different methods display different advantages and pitfalls.

Fractal Aspects of Galaxy Clustering
In the past decade, the mathematical concept of fractal has exerted a great influence in a large variety of scientific disciplines. It is very common to find recent papers on the application of
Anomalous scaling laws in multifractal objects
The theory of . . . lines and surfaces, for example, has long been recognized as an important branch of geometry, but in treatises on motion it was regarded as lying as much outside of the subject as
Fractals: Form, Chance, and Dimension.
This is the most extraordinarily beautiful book in thought and in form that I have read for many years, and that is all the more peculiar for its being a somewhat technically mathematical treatise.
Universal properties of dynamically complex systems: the organization of chaos
A grammar of chaos, which sheds light on universal properties of complex systems, is emerging that includes the nature of the complexity in the chaotic region.
