It is a choice of articles, many written via those that labored with Mandelbrot, memorializing the notable breadth and intensity of his paintings in technological know-how and the humanities. participants contain mathematicians, physicists, biologists, economists, and engineers, as anticipated; and likewise artists, musicians, academics, an historian, an architect, a filmmaker, and a comic book. a few articles are really technical, others totally descriptive. All contain tales approximately Benoit.

Also incorporated are chapters on fractals and song through Charles Wuorinen and via Harlan Brothers, on fractals and finance via Richard Hudson and by means of Christian Walter, on fractal invisibility cloaks by way of Nathan Cohen, and a private memory by way of Aliette Mandelbrot.

While he's recognized most generally for his paintings in arithmetic and in finance, Benoit encouraged nearly each box of recent highbrow job. No different ebook captures the breadth of all of Benoit's accomplishments.

26 Benoit knew how to work hard; he worked hard every day I saw him. But when looking for new examples of fractals, he was playful, childlike, even. Everyone who saw this saw Benoit’s intellect at its liveliest. This was a joy to watch. com by UNIVERSITY OF BIRMINGHAM on 08/10/16. For personal use only. 10 Sense of wonder, sense of humor In fact, my happiest moments of working with Benoit — and indeed some of the happiest moments of my life — were when a new idea or question occurred to one of us.

The right picture is a later stage of the construction, with the removed discs painted white instead of grey. With minor modifications, this method can generate limit sets of Kleinian group actions, an important constructon in William Thurston’s geometrization program for 3-manifolds. An early talk at Harvard on nonlinear iteration led to an interesting interchange between Benoit and David Mumford, reported in [1].
