In Benoit Mandelbrot's passing, who's work on Fractal Geometry helped create Pixar and inspire so many an appropriate tribute would be that he helped us imagine "To infinity and beyond." FractalExpolrer.com for a book on fractals.
One of the greatest mathematicians Benoit Mandelbrot and a friend died today.He will be missed. He gave an added dimension to life. I had the privilege to know him and share his passion of fractal geometry with him and his friends. I took this picture some 25 years ago when had the chance to share time with the fathers... of modern fractal geometry at UC Santa Cruz.
