Benoit Mandelbrot is Sterling Professor Emeritus of Mathematical Sciences at Yale University and IBM Fellow Emeritus (Physics) at the IBM Research Center. He is best known as the founder of fractal geometry β the first broad attempt to investigate quantitatively the ubiquitous notion of roughness. He seeks a measure of order in physical, mathematical or social phenomena that are characterized by abundant data but wild variability, and speaks eloquently for βthe unity of knowing and feeling.β
