By Silvia Pavel and Monique Boileau. The Combinatory Vocabulary of Fractal Imagery describes the special language that is used in two new disciplines, namely the dynamics of chaos and the geometry of nature. The vocabulary is intended for use by researchers, teachers and students who wish to discuss in French, the concepts of fractal imagery; by painters, writers and composers who advocate fractal aesthetics; by technical writers and translators involved in reformulating specialized discourse in this field of knowledge. The phraseological component of the main entries gives useful information about the discursive combinatory of the French terms as illustrated in the specialized sources that are mentioned in the bibliography of this vocabulary.
