Im Rahmen des Symposiums "TED2010" führt Benoît Mandelbrot, eine lebende Legende der Mathematik, ein Thema aus, welches er bereits 1984 bei TED erörtert hatte: die ungeheure Komplexität der Rauigkeit, und die Vorgehensweise, wie die Fraktalmathematik eine Ordnung herstellen kann innerhalb musterartiger Strukturen, die unbeschreiblich kompliziert zu sein scheinen.

Benoit Mandelbrot's work led the world to a deeper understanding of fractals, a broad and powerful tool in the study of roughness, both in nature and in humanity's works. Full bio
