About this Textbook

From Newton to Mandelbrot. A Primer in Theoretical Physics with Fractals for the Macintosh ( ) takes the student on a tour of the most important landmarks of theoretical physics: classical, quantum, and statistical mechanics, relativity, electrodynamics, and, the most modern and exciting of all, the physics of fractals. The treatment is confined to the essentials of each area, and short computer programs, numerous problems, and beautiful color illustrations round off this unusual textbook. Ideally suited for a one-year course in theoretical physics it will also prove useful in preparing and revising for exams. This edition is corrected and includes a new appendix on elementary particle physics, answers to all short questions, and a Macintosh diskette where a selection of executable programs exploring the fractal concept can be found. The Diskette The program FRACTAL DIMENSION can be used on any 68030-, 68040,- or PowerPC-based Macintosh with 4 Mb RAM and 256 color display running System 6.7 - 7.5 - Sierpinski gasket - Random walk - Self-avoiding walk - Percolation - Diffusion-limited aggregation (DLA) - Neuron shape
