    Default Benoit Mandelbrot













    Benoît Mandelbrot
    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.

    There is even a short video of him describing his unique talent:

    So, what is his type? I have my hunch, but I would like to hear what others think. Below some pictures of Mandelbrot sets I quite liked:
