Beginning at The passing of a maverick On October 14, , the scientific community lost a great colleague, visionary and friend as Benoit Mandelbrot passed away at the age of 85 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Mandelbrot is survived by his wife Aliette; two sons, Laurent and Didier; and three grandchildren. What I did was to open up roughness for investigation. On these grounds, one might argue that I was misplaced in going into science, but I do not think so. Anyhow, I was lucky to be able—eventually—to devise a private way of combining mathematics, science, philosophy and the arts. Its principles are taught to young students across the world.

The internecine and often Machiavellian maneuvering within the academic mathematics community are interestingly and clearly illuminated. I am inspired to go back and look-up a lot of things.

Second, there were no deep details about his real work, about math. It makes no sense that he chose to ignore a discussion about the tradeoffs between fractal dimension and Kolmogorov complexity, but decided to talk at length about administrative officers.

Ego is the Enemy. And a lot of financial help. View all 3 comments. In The Fractalist, Mandelbrot recounts the high points of his life with exuberance and an eloquent fluency, deepening our understanding of the evolution of his extraordinary mind. The resulting complexity has to be seen to believe, and it is this complexity-from-simplicity that in many ways provides deep insight into nature, complex systems and structures, and the universe itself As a frsctales I thought it was outstanding but his habit of dropping names became a little annoying.

In The Fractalist, Mandelbr A fascinating memoir from the man who revitalized visual geometry, and whose ideas about fractals have changed how we look at fianzas the natural world and the financial world. These people were long-dead when this book came out. Related Posts
