Is there any way to compare two fractals and analyse the difference between the two. I'm doing a project on fractals and It'll be very easy if there is a module which can be used to analyse and compare fractals! Does such a thing exists?

This question came from our site for users of Mathematica.

What kind of difference are you interested in? – Alex Becker May 12 '13 at 3:23
Of course, there are many ways to compare two fractals. You'll need to be more specific to get a good answer. Do you have any particular fractal sets in mind? What kind of properties are you interested in? What is your background? – Mark McClure May 12 '13 at 3:24
Perhaps the most fundamental way to compare two fractals would be by their dimension. – bill s May 12 '13 at 4:17
Maybe this discussion can help you. – Vitaliy Kaurov May 12 '13 at 5:14
