Product Description:
Clouds Are Not Spheres: The Fractal Theory of Benoit Mandelbrot Video (VHS/DVD). Both elegant and sublime, fractal geometry has taught mathematicians and scientists to see things differently while quantifying a new level of order in the natural world. In this captivating program, visionary mathematician Beno?t Mandelbrot tells his life story as it relates to his spatial approach to problem solving and his scientific achievements. Supported by the insights of Nobel Laureate Ivar Giaever and others, the documentary unifies the disparate periods of Mandelbrot’s life around the recurring concept of iteration. "Until fractal geometry became organized, my life had followed a fractal orbit," quips Dr. Mandelbrot. (57 minutes)
