Description

We begin this article, which deals largely with Benoît B. Mandelbrot’s contributions to and influence upon mathematics, with a quotation from the introduction to Fractals: Form, Chance, and Dimension [16]. This essay, together with many pictures and numerous lectures in the same vein, changed the way science looks at nature and had a significant impact on mathematics. It is easy for us now to think that what he says is obvious; it was not.
