Benoit Mandelbrot on using Fractals to find Order in Chaos

We chanced upon this amazing talk by the Poland-born French-American mathematician known as the ‘father of fractal geometry’, where he spoke about how he discovered fractals, and how scientists, architects and artists have unconsciously applied fractular geometry to their work. This was one of his last few talks before he left us.

What’s even more interesting is not only do these geometric patterns apply to nature but fractal geometry can also be used to predict the way the stock market moves. Something that perhaps nobody else can lay claim is the appearance of a crop circle in the form of the Mandelbrot in Cambridge UK, spotted a few days after a talk given by the man himself in the vicinity in 1990.

That’s pretty intriguing, this twenty minute talk goes deep into the extreme complexity of roughness, and the way that fractal math can find order within patterns that seem unthinkably complicated.
