Benoît Mandelbrot, the father of fractal geometry, passed away on the 14th of October.  So long, and thanks for all the fractals :salute:

zn+1 = zn2 + c

If you haven't seen his TED Talk Fractals and the Art of Roughness from last summer it's well worth watching.

He will be missed. I agree with others, that we are blessed to have had him in our world and that it is good he doesn't have to struggle with cancer anymore. It is sad for us, though, that he is gone.


You are also missed.

:worship: Mandelbrot is a legend. An embedded iconic presence who will live forever in our culture. He was a Mathematical genius and the fractalist's hero. He has left us all a priceless legacy, a treasure that will inspire for many centuries to come.
