Note(s): This chapter is about fractals. Objects in space can have fractal properties. Time series of values can have fractal properties. Sets of numbers can have fractal properties. Much of the statistics that you are familiar with deals with the “linear” properties of data. Fractals can help us describe some “non-linear” properties of data.
