Fractal Analysis and its Applications in Human Palaentology.
Josep M. Arqués
Abstract. In this paper we explain three very well known measures
of fractal dimension: self-similarity dimension, divider dimension and
box counting dimension, in order to choose the best method to calculate
the fractal dimension of cranial sutures. Fractal analysis was applied
in human palaeontology by Gibert and Palmqvist (1995). Our paper describe
some improvements of the method implemented by Gibert and Palmqvist, and
propose new lines of research about this topic.
Key words. fractal dimension, box counting.
