Self-inverse fractals, Apollonian nets, and soap

  • Benoit B. Mandelbrot


To Chapter 18 of M 1982F, this chapter adds a related figure from Chapter 20. Changing from the unusual format of M 1982F to this book’s conventional format entailed a few nonlinear rearrangements and called for wording to be inserted for continuity or consistence. The last page of the original text summarized M 1983m{C18}; it was deleted. The art was downsized and the captions were integrated into the text.
