## About Benoit Mandelbrot:

Benoit B. is recognized for his contribution to the field of fractal geometry, which included coining the word "fractal" as well as for developing a "theory of roughness" and "self-similarity" in nature. He later discovered the Mandelbrot set of intricate, never-ending fractal shapes, named in his honor.

Smooth shapes are very rare in the wild but extremely important in the ivory tower and the factory.
