In the first lecture, I will recall the basic notions of fractal geometry, and on the example of the Cantor set, show what information a wavelet analysis of a function build on this set can yield. A natural generalization is then the notion of multifractal function, for which wavelet analysis appeared to be a fruitful tool.
