Benoit Mandelbrot, Mathematician, Dies at 85

"Benoît B. Mandelbrot, a maverick mathematician who developed an innovative theory of roughness and applied it to physics, biology, finance and many other fields, died on Thursday in Cambridge, Mass. He was 85."

The visual effects industry owes much to Benoît and our condolences go out to his family and colleagues.
