Request a sales quote**Fractal Functions, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets** is the first systematic exposition of the theory of fractal surfaces, a natural outgrowth of fractal sets and fractal functions. It is also the first treatment to bring these general considerations to bear on the burgeoning field of wavelets. The text is based on Massopusts work on and contributions to the theory of fractal functions, and the author uses a number of tools--including analysis, topology, algebra, and probability theory--to introduce readers to this new subject. Though much of the material presented in this book is relatively current (developed in the past decade by the author and his colleagues) and fairly specialized, an informative background is provided for those### Peter R.

Peter R. Massopust is a Privatdozent in the Center of Mathematics at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. He received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, and his habilitation from the Technical University of Munich. He worked at several universities in the United States, at the Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque (USA), and as a senior research scientist in industry before returning to the academic environment. He has written more than sixty peer-reviewed articles in the mathematical areas of Fourier Analysis, Approximation Theory, Fractals, Splines, and Harmonic Analysis and more than 20 technical reports while working in the non-academic environment. He has authored or coauthored two textbooks and two monographs, and coedited two Contemporary Mathematics Volumes and several Special Issues for peer-reviewed journals. He is on the editorial board of several mathematics journals and has given more than one hundred invited presentations at national and international conferences, workshops, and seminars.
