About the book

The book Fractal Analysis will concern practical applications including fractals. In particular, it will cover areas such as: medicine, sound engineering, image analysis and processing, artificial intelligence and many more. For example, in medicine, it will include areas such as group analysis, classification, clustering, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), electrocardiography (ECG) and other eg. RTG, PET, THV, USG, OCT. The book will present new methods of fractal analysis, provide block diagrams of algorithms and, in selected cases, contain source codes. It will hopefully be useful useful to engineers, mathematicians and PhD students and perhaps have a purpose in teaching activities. It could also be used in courses devoted to the issue of "fractal analysis" in the afore-mentioned areas of knowledge. In this respect, it will at the same time be the greatest authors’ contribution to the current state of knowledge. The book will contain many practical examples and the individual chapters will be presented in a clear and lucid manner, which will undoubtedly expand the group of potential readers to a great extent.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Jasna Bozic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
