Textbooks on Fractals and Chaos

  1. May 20, 2009 #1
    Hi! I'm perusing fractals out of personal interest. Although I come from physics, I have a background in math-major undergrad mathematics (complex analysis, a bit of modern algebra). I find Mandelbrot's Fractal Geometry of Nature relatively light reading, but I am interested in a more standard textbook account to fill in my gaps in knowledge. Do people know of some good textbooks on the subject? Thanks!

    "Chaos and Fractals" by Heinz-Otto Peitgen, et. al. and "An Introduction to Chaotic Dynamical Systems" by Robert Devaney.
