Benoit Mandelbrot (1924-2010)

Benoit Mandelbrot died on last week, aged 85. He made a well-recognize contribution to the emerging science of chaos and nonlinear systems and in my opinion its significance will greatly increase in the coming years.
It is often said that the best way to celebrate an artist is through its work. I recommend the article on the Mandelbrot set over at n-Category cafe.
