This chapter includes additional examples of fractals, and hints at parts of the subject that we have not covered. In Sections 7.3 and 7.4, the computation of the fractal dimension requires more than just a simple application of the results of Chapter 6. So these examples show that there is more to the subject than we have seen in this book.
