Benoit Mandelbrot on TED


Benoit Mandelbrot gave a fascinating talk at TED in July. I’ve been interested in fractals for many years and a big fan of Mandelbrot’s work. Mandelbrot explains how fractals describe nature in ways that other math models can not. This is an excellent TED talk.

Back in the days of floppies – the large floppies – I ran a program for many hours and many days called Fractint – the application is enchanting!
