(Includes a Mac disk of demo software.)

- •
**A Brief Introduction to Fractal Geometry**. 1994 - A whistle-stop tour of fractal dimension, the Koch snowflake, Sierpinski gasket, Cantor dust, Julia sets, random walks, diffusion limited aggregation, and percolation
- • Per Bak, Michael Creutz.
**Fractals and Self-Organized Criticality**. 1994 - An overview of self-organised criticality, and how it is that systems can move themselves into this state. A lot about sand piles.
- • Sergey V. Buldyrev, Ary L. Goldberger, Shlomo Havlin, C.-K. Peng, H. Eugene Stanley.
**Fractals in Biology and Medicine: from DNA to the heartbeat**. 1994 - Recent progress applying fractal concepts to biology and medicine: lung airways, arterial system, cauliflower heads, neuron shape, viscous fingering, bacterial colony spread, information coding in DNA, heartbeats, evolutionary extinctions
- • Janos Kertesz, Tamas Vicsek.
**Self-Affine Interfaces**. 1994 - Self-affine systems (self-similar, but with different scale factors along different directions): roughness of surfaces, growth of surfaces
- • George H. Weiss.
**A Primer of Random Walkology**. 1994 - Brownian motion, diffusion. Random walks on a lattice, continuous-time random walk, random walks in disordered media.
- • Mohamed Daoud.
**Polymers**. 1994 - Linear chains, self avoiding random walks, adsoption
- • Sidney Redner, Francois Leyvraz.
**Kinetics and Spatial Organization of Competitive Reactions**. 1994 - Two species A and B reacting, A+B-->I, where I is inert
- • David Avnir, Ricardo Gutfraind, Dina Farin.
**Fractal Analysis in Heterogeneous Chemistry**. 1994 - The structure and geometry of the reaction environment
- • Dennis C. Rapaport, Martin Meyer.
**Computer Exploration of Fractals, Chaos, and Cooperativity**. 1994 - An overview of the accompanying software
