Memoir of a Scientific Maverickwas published in But in the moment-by-moment frenzy of the markets, all the pressure is on generating returns, risk be damned.

Statistical self-similarity and fractional dimension” PDF. Poland France United States. As a visiting professor at Harvard UniversityMandelbrot began to study fractals called Julia sets that were invariant under certain transformations of the complex plane.

So the goal of science is starting with a mess, and explaining it with a simple formula, a kind of dream of science. After World War II ended, Mandelbrot studied mathematics, graduating from universities in Paris and the United States and receiving a master’s degree in aeronautics from the California Institute of Technology.

If those assumptions are wrong, everything falls apart; rather than a carefully tuned profit engine, your portfolio may actually be a dangerous, careening rattletrap.

Chris AndersonTED conference curator, described Mandelbrot as “an icon who changed how we see the world”. Together, all this news big and filetyp, all these price changes big and small, mix together in the crucible of a marketplace.

Mandelbrot used the term “fractal” as it derived from the Latin word “fractus”, defined as broken or shattered glass. Laureates of the Wolf Prize in Physics.

Benoit’s book decimates the notion of a normal distribution of stock price changes and all of the models that rely on it: Can geometry deliver what the Greek root of its name [geo-] seemed to promise—truthful measurement, not only of cultivated fields along the Nile River but also of untamed Earth?

Learning from Benoit Mandelbrot — Investment Masters Class

Once you are riding out on the far ends of a scaling probability curve, the journey gets very rough. If you’ve been reading some of my recent posts, you will have noted my, and the Investment Masters belief, that many of the investment theories taught in most business schools are flawed.

Mandelbrot found that the underlying power law that was evident in random patterns in nature also applies to the positive and negative price movements of many financial instruments.
