Editorial Review Product Description Mathematical superstar and inventor of fractal geometry, Benoit Mandelbrot, has spent the past forty years studying the underlying mathematics of space and natural patterns. What many of his followers don't realize is that he has also been watching patterns of market change. In The (Mis)Behavior of Markets, Mandelbrot joins with science journalist and former Wall Street Journal editor Richard L. Hudson to reveal what a fractal view of the world of finance looks like. The result is a revolutionary reevaluation of the standard tools and models of modern financial theory. Markets, we learn, are far riskier than we have wanted to believe. From the gyrations of IBM's stock price and the Dow, to cotton trading, and the dollarEuro exchange rateMandelbrot shows that the world of finance can be understood in more accurate, and volatile, terms than the tired theories of yesteryear.The ability to simplify the complex has made Mandelbrot one of the century's most influential mathematicians. With The (Mis)Behavior of Markets, he puts the tools of higher mathematics into the hands of every person involved with markets, from financial analysts to economists to 401(k) holders. Markets will never be seen as "safe bets" again. Customer Reviews (70)

Editorial Review Product Description Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, and lightening does not travel in a straight line. The complexity of nature's shapes differs in kind, not merely degree, from that of the shapes of ordinary geometry, the geometry of fractal shapes. Now that the field has expanded greatly with many active researchers, Mandelbrot presents the definitive overview of the origins of his ideas and their new applications. The Fractal Geometry of Nature is based on his highly acclaimed earlier work, but has much broader and deeper coverage and more extensive illustrations. The Fractal Geometry ofNature is a mathematics text. But buried in the deltas and lambdasand integrals, even a layperson can pick out and appreciateMandelbrot's point: that somewhere in mathematics, there is anexplanation for nature. It is not a coincidence that fractal math isso good at generating images of cliffs and shorelines and capillarybeds. Customer Reviews (20)

Editorial Review Product Description Mandelbrot is world famous for his creation of the new mathematics of fractal geometry. Yet few people know that his original field of applied research was in econometrics and financial models, applying ideas of scaling and selfsimilarity to arrays of data generated by financial analyses. This book brings together his original papers as well as many original chapters specifically written for this book. Customer Reviews (4)
Typical Mandlebrot
A clear warning to all those financial analysts using N(0,1)
scientific way of evaluating price movement
A book to make you think differently about the markets

Editorial Review Product Description From the foreword by Peter W Jones, Yale University This book provides a history of the Mandelbrot set of quadratic dynamics together with the authors hardtofind early papers. It has extensive illustrations throughout and is divided into four sections: quadratic dynamics, klein groups, Minkowski measures, and Julia sets. Each section starts with introductory chapters giving historical context and background to the material. Benoit B Mandelbrot is Sterling Professor of Mathematical Sciences at Yale University and IBM Fellow Emeritus (Physics) at the IBM T J Watson Research Center. He was awarded the Wolf Prize for Physics in 1993 and the Japan Prize for Science and Technology in 2003.

Fractals  Applied Mathmatics and Computer Programming
Great book on fractals and imaging
One of the best (if no the best) in the feild This book reads at any level, Great introduction to the field as well as an indespencible reference. Shows easy to implement code examples, and has lots of pictures showing what can beacheived. This has been a main reference for a theisis I am currentlyworking on. The question is, why is it out of print. If you can find itit's worth it's wheight in gold.

Editorial Review Product Description Fractional geometry posits that a natural visual complexity can arise from iteration of simple rules and simple shapes. An Eye for Fractals is a fascinating study of the converse premise: that nature’s complexity implies an underlying simplicity that can be traced back to fractal geometry.The book effectively integrates art with science, illustrating the natural occurrence of mathematics and geometry in lava flows, kelp beds, cloud formations and aspen groves. The book is enhanced with more than 150 photographs and drawings, including some color illustrations. An Eye for Fractals is a beautiful introduction to fractal geometry, a graphic, visual approach that should appeal to all who feel the fascination of this artful mathematics. Customer Reviews (4)

Editorial Review Product Description Just 23 years ago Benoit Mandelbrot published his famous picture of the Mandelbrot set, but that picture has changed our view of the mathematical and physical universe. In this text, Mandelbrot offers 25 papers from the past 25 years, many related to the famous inkblot figure. Of historical interest are some early images of this fractal object produced with a crude dotmatrix printer. The text includes some items not previously published.
