20 November 1924, Warsaw, Poland – 14 October 2010, Cambridge, Massachusetts, US.
“Mandelbrot worked on a wide range of mathematical problems, including mathematical physics and quantitative finance, but is best known as the father of fractal geometry. He coined the term fractal and described the Mandelbrot set. Mandelbrot extensively popularized his work, writing books and giving lectures aimed at the general public.”
