Book Title: Beauty of Fractals: Images of Complex Dynamical Systems

Author: Heinz-Otto Peitgen

Book Description:

One of the earliest books I read about chaos. In the late 1980s, after completing my master's degree in Mechanical Engineering at Kuwait University, and as I was starting to be more and more interested in the field of chaos, this book helped further my understanding of the term 'chaos' (Order within disorder) as it applies to Science and Nature. In particular, the connection between Art and Science through 'Chaos' was beautifully illustrated in this book.
