Tribute to Benoit Mandelbrot

Posted by Harry Seldon on October 18, 2010

Benoit Mandelbrot is, imho, the biggest genius of the XXth century and our time. His work has already technologically changed our world (CGI, cell phone antennas, processors shapes, unerstanding stock market krachs, etc.). But the day, the philosophy, the epistemology, behind his work is understood, the day, the “language of nature” that Mandelbrot taught us, is understood, this day, the world will be a lot more peaceful.

Benoit Mandelbrot, father of the fractal theory, has just died

Posted by Harry Seldon on October 17, 2010

Benoit Mandelbrot is leaving us way too soon, even at 86. There is still so much to do to educate people about fractals.

I got the incredible luck to speak to him on the phone almost exactly one year ago (on the Sunday 24th of October 2009). He was still in good shape and he had quite a lot of projects. Among them, he was preparing a book of his memories. I hope he had the time to finish it.

I am shocked by this news.
All my thoughts go to his familly.
