Unformatted text preview: act sets A, B , and C , we show h(A, B )+
h(B, C ) ≥ h(A, C ). Write h(A, B ) = δ1 and h(B, C ) = δ2 .
A ⊆ Bδ1 (2.4) B ⊆ Cδ2 (2.5) and
From Eq (2.5), we see Bδ1 ⊆ (Cδ2 )δ1 ⊆ Cδ1 +δ2 , where the second containment
follows from Lemma 2.2.1. Together with Eq (2.4), this shows A ⊆ Cδ1 +δ2 . A
similar argument gives C ⊆ Aδ1 +δ2 , from which we see h(A, C ) ≤ δ1 + δ2 =
h(A, B ) + h(B, C ).
In the next section, we use the Hausdorﬀ metric to show that the deterministic IFS algorithm generates a sequence of compact sets converging to a unique
limit, the attractor of the IFS.
Practice problems
Prxs 2.2.1 (a) Find the Hausdorﬀ distance between Q, the set of rational numbers in [0, 1], and I , the set of irrational numbers in [0, 1].
