Mandelbrot has passed away last week.  A very interesting  mathematician, who received tenure from Yale only at 75, he has introduced fractals also in fracture mechanics.

Re: Benoit Mandelbrot dies at 85

Thanks Mike. This is another sad news. I met Mandelbrot in 2001 in Caltech before his invited seminar and spent an hour with him. We discussed fractals and fractures and then he started talking about Iran and politics. It was a very pleasant and memorable conversation.
