Fractal Geometry

While researching properties of turbulence over telephone lines at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY, Benoit Mandelbrot discovered the principles that would later form the new field of fractal geometry. This discovery made it possible, for the first time in the history of mankind, to describe nature with math. These are Benoit Mandelbrot’s words.
