This publication includes the complaints of the convention "Fractals in Graz 2001 - research, Dynamics, Geometry, Stochastics" that was once held within the moment week of June 2001 at Graz collage of know-how, within the capital of Styria, southeastern province of Austria. The clinical committee of the assembly consisted of M. Barlow (Vancouver), R. Strichartz (Ithaca), P. Grabner and W. Woess (both Graz), the latter being the neighborhood organizers and editors of this quantity. We made an attempt to unite within the convention in addition to within the current professional ceedings a mess of other instructions of energetic present paintings, and to compile researchers from quite a few international locations in addition to learn fields that every one are associated not directly with the trendy concept of fractal constructions. even though (or simply because) in Graz there's just a very small team engaged on fractal constructions, which includes "non-insiders", we are hoping to were winning with this software of large horizons. All papers have been written upon particular invitation through the editors, and we're satisfied in order to current this consultant landscape of contemporary paintings on poten tial concept, random walks, spectral idea, fractal teams, dynamic structures, fractal geometry, and extra. The papers awarded the following underwent a refereeing strategy.
