The Road to Ruin. Fractals and Chaos von Mandelbrot, Benoit. I also very much liked “The Mis behavior of Markets” and really should get around to reading “The Fractal Geometry of Nature” at some point.

The result is a revolutionary fractaes of the standard tools and models of modern financial theory. It was a lot of mathematicians and leaders in the field who felt the human mind was the only way to solve complex problems. Benoit Mandelbrot was no doubt an incredible man.

But he did have a lot of help.

Vuoi dare un altro sguardo a questa recensione? He never would have solved his problem without the speed of modern computers. Thank You for Arguing. We are lucky he did it and wrote th This man figured out the geometry Nature has been using. He was always interested in applying math to different fields, like economics, fluid dynamics, information theory, many more. While his life was interesting, this memoir felt a bit disjointed. Mandelbrot was born in Poland, but his family moved to France when he was a child; he was a dual French and American citizen and was educated in France.


The Hour Between Dog and Wolf. That said, I found the book generally disappointing finnazas it contains almost no math, and is more full of self-congratulation than I like. Or anyone interested in memoir.

Markets will never be seen as “safe bets” again. If the entire book was written in the style of the final chapter, then I imagine something that could’ve been a five-star read.

From the gyrations of IBM’s stock price and the Dow, to cotton trading, and the dollar-Euro exchange rate–Mandelbrot shows that the world of finance can be understood in more accurate, and volatile, terms than the tired theories of yesteryear. Markets, we learn, are far riskier than we have wanted to believe. I loved getting to know Benoit Mandelbrot from this perspective. There are some amazing photos in here both having mandlebrot do with fractals and also about his personal life.

Mathematical superstar and inventor of fractal geometry, Benoit Mandelbrot, has spent the past fractalex years studying the underlying mathematics of space and natural patterns. Never Split the Difference. What many of his followers don’t realize is that he has also been watching patterns of market change.


The Fractalist: Memoir of a Scientific Maverick by Benoît B. Mandelbrot

He hardly mentions the computer programmers who helped make fractals possible. Interesting perspective on mathematical life in the 20th century. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Dry prose laced with frequent self-congratulation that makes you alternate between yawning and rolling your eyes.

Not bad but not good either. This is his first book for lay readers on finance, a subject he has studied yy the s. I think I should have since I have a degree in electrical engineering and one in operations research and statistical analysis albeit old ones. Carrello Sarai trattato da vero VIP!

It’s not very often that you get to read a genius intelligibly describing to you how he came to be a genius; the first half of this book is Mandelbrot’s origin story, pretty much. The language and voice is much more organic, thoughtful, reflective, and illuminating.

I read that some readers criticized his narcissistic style of writing, comparing himself several times with Kepler, Mandelrot etc.
