Benoît Mandelbrot (1924 – 2010)

Brilliant mathematician and the father of fractals, Benoît Mandelbrot, died on Thursday, October 14th at the age of 85.

If you take the beginning and the end, I have had a conventional career… But it was not a straight line between the beginning and the end. It was a very crooked line.

Watch his TED talk from February of 2010: Benoit Mandelbrot: Fractals and the art of roughness, the NOVA special on fractals (with Mandelbrot interview), and read his tribute in The New York Times.
