He has been awarded with numerous honors, including induction into the Legion d’honneuras well as the Franklin Medal for Physics, the Wolf Prize for Physics, the Lewis Fry Richardson Medal of the European Geophysical Society, and the Japan Prize “for the fractaels of universal concepts in complex systems.

He hardly mentions the computer programmers who helped make fractals possible. Dit zijn de memoires van de uitvinder of ontdekker van de z.

The result is a revolutionary reevaluation of the standard tools and models of modern financial theory. Jan 24, Palimp rated it really liked it.


That said, I found the book generally disappointing as it contains almost no math, and is more full of self-congratulation than I like. The Bed of Procrustes.

Both fractals and living forms start from primal simplicity going through many interactions to reach marvellous organized complexity.

With The Mis Behavior of Markets, he puts the tools of higher mathematics into the hands of every person involved with markets, from financial analysts to economists to k holders. The internecine and often Machiavellian maneuvering within the academic mathematics community are interestingly and clearly illuminated. In short, this was a fantastic read about mandeblrot of today’s mathematicians. I am inspired to go back and look-up a lot of things.

Hudson was the managing editor of the Wall Street Journal’s European edition for six years, and a Journal reporter and editor for twenty-five years.

I loved the beginning of the book about his early years and looked ahead to find he didn’t hardly cover his personal life in the later part.

Don’t completely agree with his assessment, but very interesting learning more of the life experiences that accompanied his evolution as a mathematician. Puoi leggerlo utilizzando uno qualsiasi dei seguenti dispositivi o una app Kobo: La recensione deve essere di almeno 50 caratteri.


Benoit Mandelbrot was no doubt an incredible man. The Mandelbrot set M defined by: Nelle parti seguenti, troppi incontri, personaggi, esperienze. As I read his book I came to understand it as a description of his career path and his family, which is totally fine, but a bit boring to be perfectly honest.

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.

The Fractalist: Memoir of a Scientific Maverick by Benoît B. Mandelbrot

The Honest Truth About Dishonesty: Un gran libro, una gran experiencia se h Fractalista! 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.
