/ben'wa man'dl-bro/ Benoit B. Mandelbrot. The IBM scientist who wrote several original books on fractals and gave his name to the set he was discovered, the Mandelbrot set and coined the term "fractal" in 1975 from the Latin fractus or "to break".

Benoit Mandelbrot invented the term fractal in 1975 and described like imagine of a figure, a leaf for example, which reproduces itself to infinity, always the same shape but always smaller.
An approach to detect long-term dependence is to use the range over standard deviation or rescaled-range (R/S) statistics, originally developed by Hurst (1951), later improved by Mandelbrot & Wallis (1969a; 1969b) and Mandelbrot & Taqqu (1979) and popularized in the financial context by Mandelbrot (1972, 1975).
La hipotesis de fractalidad de sucesos naturales (Mandelbrot, 1982) implica esta propiedad de autosimilitud, en el sentido de que las partes responden en una escala menor al todo.

In this work, the Mandelbrot set has been used as a basis to develop the microstrip patch antenna structure.
To compute (Dsurf) some of researchers applied the covering divider method (Richardson, 1961; Mandelbrot, 1967; Goodchild, 1982; Aviles et al., 1987; Snow, 1989; Beauvais and Montgomery, 1997; Wilson and Dominic, 1998; Xie et al., 1998).
The process within this range is subdivided into "fractional Brownian motion" with -3<k<-1 and "fractional white noise" with -1<k<1 (Mandelbrot, 1977, 1983).
En lo que respecta a la teoria fractal, las formulaciones de Mandelbrot, si bien consistentes con los temas, los planteamientos y la arquitectura de las historias de Borges, como se mostrara, son posteriores a la mayoria de lo que este escribio, por lo que es casi seguro que el escritor desconociera completamente su existencia.
Benoit Mandelbrot (1924-2010), often known as the "father of fractal geometry" (Gomory, 2010), revived the study of fractal geometry in the late 1960's, eventually coining the term 'fractal' (stemming from the Latin word for 'broken') in the year 1975.
Mandelbrot, that twice-baked, oblong Jewish pastry, defies culinary convention.
Fractals was first used by the Polish-born, French-American mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot in 1975.
