Paper Abstract

In general, the most suitable characterization of rough surfaces has been given by the physical quantity of roughness. In recent years, however, it has become clear that a certain class of actual surfaces has complicated structures with scale-invariant features and is not effectively characterized only by the roughness since such structures do not have characteristic lengths [1]. The rough surfaces with scale-invariant features are called fractal surfaces.
