ABSTRACT
Based on new constructive means of the theory of R-functions, new approaches are proposed to the construction of equations for objects of fractal geometry. Equations for some of the most well-known fractals, namely, the Koch curve, snowflake, and cross, Sierpinski carpet, Levy fractal, and Pythagoras tree are presented.
