About the Author

Benoit B. Mandelbrot was the inventor of fractal geometry, whose most famous example, the Mandlebrot Set, is one of the most iconic images in mathematics. He was Sterling Professor Emeritus of Mathematical Sciences at Yale University and a Fellow Emeritus at IBM's Thomas J. Watson Laboratory and the recipient of the Wolf Prize in Physics and the Japan Prize in science and technology, as well as awards from the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the IEEE, and numerous universities in the U.S. and abroad.

His books include Fractals: Form, Chance and Dimension, which was later expanded into the classic The Fractal Geometry of Nature, and a memoir, The Fractalist, which was published posthumously.

Richard L. Hudson was the managing editor of the Wall Street Journal's European edition for six years, and a Journal reporter and editor for twenty-five years. He is a 1978 graduate of Harvard University and a 1991 Knight Fellow of MIT. Now the CEO and editor of Science Publishing Ltd., he lives in Brussels, Belgium.
