Until recently geometry was 'cold' - incapable of describing the irregular shape of a cloud, the slope of a mountain or the beauty of the human body. With fractal geometry, Benoit Mandelbrot gave us a language for our natural world. In this captivating documentary, the man himself explains this groundbreaking discovery
Is God a number? : maths that mimic the mind( Visual )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Examines the computational paradigms being used to model human consciousness and to quantify reality, from Euclidean geometry to fractal transform algorithms. Oxford mathematician Sir Roger Penrose, quantum physicist Reverend John Polkinghorne, compression technology expert Michael Barnsley, and physiologist Horace Barlow seek to understand how the brain functions--and grope for evidence of a guiding force ... Computer graphics enhance this exploration of inner and outer space"--Container label
Clouds are not spheres : the life and work of a maverick mathematician( Visual )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both elegant and sublime, fractal geometry has taught mathematicians and scientists to see things differently while quantifying a new level of order in the natural world. In this program, Benoit Mandelbrot tells his life story as it relates to his spatial approach to problem solving and his scientific achievements. Supported by the insights of Nobel Laureate Ivar Giaever and others, the documentary unifies the disparate periods of Mandelbrot's life around the recurring concept of iteration
