Fractal geometry is a tool employed to define real objects in nature which cannot be characterized by Euclidean geometry. It was conceptualized by Mandelbrot [1] and has been widely used in various fields such as science, art [2–4], economics [5–8], etc. Especially, in science, the secret of the anomalous phenomena which take place on rough and irregular surfaces has been unlocked with the help of fractal geometry.
