The topics covered in this volume include formation of fractal structures (kinetics of aggregation and gelation, depositions, cluster growth, chemical reactions, fractures, self-organized criticality, etc), physical properties of fractals (transport, vibrations, magnetism, etc.), and especially applications of fractal concepts in material sciences, geosciences, biologies and order fields.
