Read e-book online Benoit Mandelbrot:A Life in Many Dimensions (Fractals and PDF

By Michael Frame,Nathan Cohen

This is a set of articles, many written via those who labored with Mandelbrot, memorializing the striking breadth and intensity of his paintings in technology and the humanities. individuals contain mathematicians, physicists, biologists, economists, and engineers, as anticipated; and likewise artists, musicians, academics, an historian, an architect, a filmmaker, and a comic book. a few articles are relatively technical, others totally descriptive. All comprise tales approximately Benoit.

Also incorporated are chapters on fractals and song via Charles Wuorinen and through Harlan Brothers, on fractals and finance via Richard Hudson and by way of Christian Walter, on fractal invisibility cloaks by way of Nathan Cohen, and a private memory via Aliette Mandelbrot.

While he's identified most generally for his paintings in arithmetic and in finance, Benoit encouraged virtually each box of contemporary highbrow job. No different publication captures the breadth of all of Benoit's accomplishments.
