Benoit Mandelbrot has died

Reported by Nassim Nicholas Taleb and other sources, Benoit Mandelbrot, the founder of the mathematical school of fractal geometry, has died at the age of 85.

In his honor, you should watch his last (that I know of) public appearance at TED Talks 2010.


Mathieu! Where have you gone?
