The focus of this text is on now fractal geometry can be used to model real objects in the physical world. Rather than considering only fractal images of the been generated randomly, the approach here is to start with a natural object and find a specific fractal to fit it. Applications of fractal geometry extend to biological modeling, physiological modeling, geography, coastlines, turbulence, images, computer graphics, feathers, and ocean spray. The applications to computer graphics and, in particular, image compression for data transmission and reconstruction are exciting new developments.
