Fractal Geometry
My Publications in this field
Optimal transport paths have closed relationships with fractals.
For instance, we may combine the ideas of optimal transport paths with DLA (diffusion limited aggregation) by setting the probability of a new particle sticking to the already formed cluster to be a number which is inversely proportional to the additional transportation cost from the sticking position to the source via the existing transport system hidden in the cluster.  Then, by changing the parameter alpha as in the theory of optimal transport paths, we get a family of clusters with full range of fractal dimensions ranging from 1 to 2. The ordinary DLA corresponds to the case alpha=0 with dimension around 1.7.
