Mandelbrot writes with economy and felicity, and he intersperses the more mathematical sections with frank historical anecdotes, such as the events that led up to his work on cotton pricing and the embarrassment caused by interpreting US Department of Agriculture data for weekly averages as 'Sunday closing prices. It will not suit everyone's taste but will almost surely teach every reader something new. What more can one ask?"

Selecta Volume E. Springer New York, 18 set 1997 - 552 pagine. This was a foretaste of the line of thought that eventually led to fractals and to the notion that major pieces of the physical world could be, and in fact could only be, modeled by distrib utions and sets that had fractional dimensions. Usually these distributions and sets were known to mathematicians, as they were known to me, as curiosities and counter-intuitive examples used to show graduate students the need for rigor in their proofs.

Benoit B. Mandelbrot, . Mandelbrot is world famous for his creation of the new mathematics of fractal geometry. This book brings together his original papers as well as many original chapters specifically written for this book. Springer Science & Business Media, Mar 9, 2013 - Mathematics - 551 pages.

Mandelbrot is world famous for his creation of the new mathematics of fractal geometry. Yet few people know that his original field of applied research was in econometrics and financial models, applying ideas of scaling and self-similarity to arrays of data generated by financial analyses. This book brings together his original papers as well as many original chapters specifically written for this book.
