A look at cutting edge Sciecne, Dr. Mandelbrot served as Institute Lecturer at MIT, Professor of Applied Mathematics at Harvard, of Engineering at Yale of Physiology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and of Mathematics at the University of Paris-Sud. Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, and lighting does not travel in a straight line. The complexity of nature s shape differs in kind, not merely degree, from that of the shapes of ordinary geometry. To describe such shapes, Benoit Mandelbrot conceived and developed a new geometry, the geometry of fractal shapes. a well illustrated (many in color), cloth, dj, very good. 8-1/2 by 9-1/2 inches. From the scientest to a novice like me, this is a book to delight and inspire you.
