Explanation in Mandelbrot the Magnificient sent me to Google to learn In istorical pieces there are few things I love than a drive to find out the truer than true version of something And yet I ave to wonder where the Serifot fits into true mathematics if at all today ConsMathematics is a truly beautiful language all it s own For those of us like myself that are intrigued by complex physics chemistry and mathematics but unable to truly comprehend them it s always great to read a book that breaks concepts down or tries to teach you basic theories at a non academic level In Mandelbrot the Magnificent there are two downfalls with this approach 1 The imagery and concepts of complex mathematics are made into too much magic As though you just be a magician to understand While perhaps this isn t a bad comparison it made me wonder what was true in the story and what wasn t How did Mandelbrot protect people Obviously wasn t true magic as this is a true story and so something about Maid of Dishonor (The Wedding Season, his understanding of mathematics benefitedis family when the Nazi s came knocking But because the descriptions and explanation are so founded in some sort of magic I am at a loss to explain any part of the theories or ideas that were used 2 There are lots of pretty mathematic graphics in this book but few actual descriptions of the complex problems Now this might be because the Ziemska didn t want to focus too much on the math aspect and instead wanted us to feel math as a part of our organic existence While I understand and get that it would Dem Nordpol am nächsten have been nice toave maybe learned something new and a bit complex instead of just naming theories I know of but still can t even begin to explain OverallGiven the small amount of time invested into reading Mandelbrot the Magnificent it s clear to me it s worth a read if you Heart Beat have any interest I couldave skipped it and been content with my life knowing what I know now about this story What I really want is someone to read an interesting compelling and factually accurate story of Mandelbrot and The Site Book his true contributions to the scientific community However if Ziemskaas given us the only insight currently available at a non math reading level into Mandelbrot s tumultuous childhood and fractal theories than without a doubt Mandlebrot the Magnificent will at least whet any appetites that And growing up in France during the rise of Hitler Benoit Mandelbrot found escape from the cruelties of the world around The Devils Possession him through mathematics Logic sometimes makes monsters and Mandelbrot beganunting monsters at an early age Drawn into the infinite promulgations of formulae e sinks into secret dimensions and un.
