Introduction to papers on Kleinian groups, their fractal limit sets, and IFS: history, recollections, and acknowledgments

  • Benoit B. Mandelbrot


IN HISTORICAL SEQUENCE, Kleinian groups came before the Fatou-Julia theory, and I explored those topics in the same sequence. But in this book, I inverted history and have put forward my best foot, or at least the best known one. This introduction will also explain the mysterious initials IFS. As in Chapter C2, some names are first printed in bold italics when it seems useful.
