Appraising the Benoit Mandelbrot Papers



Last week I finished appraising the Benoit Mandelbrot papers for donation to Stanford University. Comprised of 215 bankers boxes, this archive of one of the most famous mathematicians of the second half of the 20th century concerned mathematics, physics, mathematical economics, information theory and computer graphics.  Mandelbrot is best known for the invention of fractals and fractal geometry and the Mandelbrot Set, but his work has impacted many other fields in science from geology and oil exploration to the design of fractal antennae in cell phones.  I posted a portion of my appraisal on our website which you can download here. The images in this blog piece are of the Mandelbrot Set taken from the Wikipedia article on the subject.
