- sci.fractals FAQ
- fanal package Analyze fractal dimension. (Seems no longer availiable)
- FD3 Simple fractal dimension analyses.
- My fanal++ package (some people like to call it xfanal but thats just the name of the GUI)
- Some small programs to create fractals.

Let's try a definition: A Fractal is a set of points whose fractal dimension exceeds its topological dimension.

Some common errors with fractals.

- Fractals are selfsimilar.

In fact some are but not all. Of course this depends on the definition of the word "fractal" and the word "selfsimilar". Most times the word "scale invariance" is what is meant, but even this is not always the case. - Fractal dimension is uniquely defined.

In fact there are Reni- Hausdorff- Boxcounting- Yardstick- and a few other dimensions which may be all different. The Renidimension of first order is also called information dimension the second order correlation dimension.
