By Hans Sagan

The topic of space-filling curves has generated loads of curiosity within the a hundred years because the first such curve was once stumbled on through Peano. Cantor, Hilbert, Moore, Knopp, Lebesgue, and Polya are one of the well known mathematicians who've contributed to the sector. notwithstanding, there were no entire remedies of the topic due to the fact that Siepinsky's in 1912. Cantor confirmed in 1878 that the variety of issues on an period is equal to the variety of issues in a sq. (or dice, or whatever), and in 1890 Peano confirmed that there's certainly a continuing curve that always maps all issues of a line onto all issues of a sq., even though the curve exists simply as a restrict of very convoluted curves. This booklet discusses generalizations of Peano's resolution and the homes that such curves needs to own and discusses fractals during this context. the single prerequisite is an information of complex calculus.
