Clouds Are Not Spheres: The Fractal Theory of Benoit Mandelbrot Video (DVD)
Clouds Are Not Spheres: The Fractal Theory of Benoit Mandelbrot Video (DVD) is a captivating video documentary where you see farsighted statistician Benoit Mandelbrot tell his life story with regard to his three-dimensional approach to solving problem, and his scientific achievements. Of focus is fractal geometry, which is both sophisticated and magnificent—mathematicians and scientists alike have learnt from it to see things in a different perspective while creating a new era of order in the natural world.
Benoit Mandelbrot was frustrated by the frequent idea of iteration as can be seen by perceptions of Nobel Laureate Ivar Giaever and others. The video highlights this issue by unifying the desperate times of his life on the recurring concept of iteration. Benoit Mandelbrot himself says that until the concept of fractal geometry became conceptualized, his life had followed a fractal orbit.
This video documentary about Mandelbrot’s life and the concept of fractal geometry lasts 57 minutes.
