From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Benoît B. Mandelbrot (born November 20, 1924) is French mathematician, best known as the "father of fractal geometry".
Benoît Mandelbrot was born in Poland, but his family moved to France when he was a child; he is a French citizen and was educated in France. Mandelbrot now lives and works in the United States. He is a Sterling Professor of Mathematical Sciences, Emeritus at Yale University; IBM Fellow Emeritus at the Thomas J. Watson Research Center; and Battelle Fellow at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
