Retired professor of geography at University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis. Interests: theories of complexity, risks, Mathematica software. Check out my Mathematica-based book: Fractal Geography (also see Wiley Publishing).
Description: Our daily universe is rough and infinitely diverse. The fractal approach clarifies and orders these disparities. It helps us to envisage new explanations of geographical phenomena, which are, however, considered as definitely understood. Written for use by geographers and researchers from similar disciplines, such as ecologists, economists, historians and sociologists, this book presents the algorithms best adapted to the phenomena encountered, and proposes case studies illustrating their applications in concrete situations. An appendix is also provided that develops programs written in Mathematica.
