The Mandelbrot Set and Pi - A Chaotic Relationship?


Recommended Posts

What does the "B" in Benoit B. Mandelbrot stand for?

...Benoit B. Mandelbrot

This *is* a joke, right? (If it is, I get it!)

See, the big difference between Mandelbrot and Pi is that Mandelbrot is inside itself (that *was* the joke, right?). An infinite, non-repeating number is much more intuitively disturbing to me than something that's recursive.

Yes, Don, it's a joke. :rolleyes:

Well, I thought you might have meant something like Harry S. Truman.

Saying his middle initial stands for Harry S. Truman, i.e., there's no middle name.

Is there anyone here who cares about this stuff?

Because if so, I have a hypothesis that quarks are absolutely not the smallest particles in the universe, and it's related to a Koch Snowflake (which in turn is related to all this other stuff including Elizabeth's joke).
