Self-inverse fractals osculated by sigma-discs: the limit sets of (“Kleinian”) inversion groups

  • Benoit B. Mandelbrot


The original paper included “tinted” figures. After much discussion, the broad-minded Editor of the Intelligencer, John H. Ewing, agreed to print those figures on the front and back covers of the magazine, which until then had been black-and-white. They were overlaid on a dark version of the traditional Springer-Verlag yellow. To accommodate IBM’s Script word-processor (once a pioneer and now on its last legs), all figures had to be renumbered and captions became desirable, therefore were added. The last figure is a black-and-white reduction of the original back cover.
