Another farewell to a great mind - Benoit Mandelbrot

Benoit Mandelbrot: 24th November 1924 - 14th of October 2010.

One week on and another loss of one of the greatest minds. It is a very sad October.

He was the inventor of Fractal Geometry.

Mandelbrot was Nassim Taleb's mentor.

"A Greek among Romans".

One of the greatest book written about Markets is the below:

The (Mis)Behavior of Markets: A Fractal View of Risk, Ruin, and Reward, by BenoƮt Mandelbrot and Richard L. Hudson; Basic Books, 2004; ISBN 0-465-04355-0

It was published before the Black Swan and Fooled by Randomness.

Benoit Mandelbrot was one the greatest.

Thank you for opening up my mind to the perception of risk.
