This book contains a rigorous mathematical treatment of the geometrical aspects of sets of both integral and fractional Hausdorff dimension. Questions of local density and the existence of tangents of such sets are studied, as well as the dimensional properties of their projections in various directions. In the case of sets of integral dimension the dramatic differences between regular 'curve-like' sets and irregular 'dust like' sets are exhibited. The theory is related by duality to Kayeka sets (sets of zero area containing lines in every direction). The final chapter includes diverse examples of sets to which the general theory is applicable: discussions of curves of fractional dimension, self-similar sets, strange attractors, and examples from number theory, convexity and so on. There is an emphasis on the basic tools of the subject such as the Vitali covering lemma, net measures and Fourier transform methods.

This is a mathematically rigorous introduction to fractals which emphasizes examples and fundamental ideas. Building up from basic techniques of geometric measure theory and probability, central topics such as Hausdorff dimension, self-similar sets and Brownian motion are introduced, as are more specialized topics, including Kakeya sets, capacity, percolation on trees and the traveling salesman theorem. The broad range of techniques presented enables key ideas to be highlighted, without the distraction of excessive technicalities. The authors incorporate some novel proofs which are simpler than those available elsewhere. Where possible, chapters are designed to be read independently so the book can be used to teach a variety of courses, with the clear structure offering students an accessible route into the topic.

Research in Interactive Design presents an in-depth study of new product design methods. Interactive design is an original structured design approach that has recently emerged from transversal research. On the research side, the topic of interactive design is the fruitful result of sophisticated joint studies combining specific numerical engineering theories, original development in design science and industrial engineering, new discoveries in mechatronics and advanced mechanical engineering methods. Additionally, industry benefits from interactive design instruments. Interactive design is a constructive approach that tends to ensure innovation by improving user-integration in the design process, fostering the development of virtual prototypes and providing new powerful ways for collaborative design activities. Interactive design instruments are seen as the extension of traditional CAD tools. This book provides an accurate overview of the recent research or industrial application in interactive design. The different arguments, taken from the international conference Virtual Concept 2005, will provide the reader with some advanced solutions concerning new methods and tools by discussing: - modelling techniques: new techniques ensuring the development of high qualified, updated and reduced models being able to represent the behaviour of a process or a product in its environment; - design solution space exploration: specific instruments dedicated to the identification of suitable design solutions and their virtual representation allowing engineers to have interaction with the virtual worlds; - interactive process organization: studies highlighting the basic evolutions of a process integrating new instruments of interactive design. Each subsequent part of the book addresses both advanced techniques and industrial applications of the latest successful research in interactive design. The solutions presented are enhanced by demonstration
