This volume is the second edition of the highly successful "Fractals Everywhere". The Focus of this text is how fractal geometry can be used to model real objects in the physical world. This edition of "Fractals Everywhere" is the most up-to-date fractal textbook available today. "Fractals Everywhere" may be supplemented by Michael F. Barnsley's Desktop Fractal Design System (version 2.0) with IBM for Macintosh software. The Desktop Fractal Design System 2.0 is a tool for designing Iterated Function Systems codes and fractal images, and makes an excellent supplement to a course on fractal geometry. This volume includes a new chapter on recurrent iterated function systems, including vector recurrent iterated function systems. It provides problems and tools emphasizing fractal applications and also includes an all-new answer key to problems in the text, with solutions and hints.
