Fractal analysis and Feigenbaum universality in hadron physics

State Research Center Institute ofHigh Energy Physics, ul. Pobedy 1, Protvino, Moscow Region, 142280, Russian Federation

The current state of the mathematical formalism commonly used in the study of fractals — infinite sets with noninteger Hausdorff dimension — is briefly revealed. The application of fractal analysis to hadron physics is shown. In this connection, the hypothesis on the presence of the Feigenbaum universality in hadron multiproduction characteristics is discussed.
