Abstract

The graphical implementation in computers and image analysers of the mass-radius method of fractal dimension estimation has two sources of error. The first is associated with underestimation of area of the 'circle scan' in a square matrix; the second arises from the overestimation of areas at small radii. Methods of coping with these problems are described.
