The (mis)behavior of markets : a fractal view of risk, ruin, and reward by
Benoit B Mandelbrot(
Book
)
46 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and French and held by 1,317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Together with Richard L. Hudson, Benoit Mandelbrot turns a fractal eye to the behavior of financial markets and overturns the "random walk" theory that is the underpinning of all contemporary financial analysis. Markets, we learn, are far riskier than we have wanted to believe." "The ability to simplify the complex has made Mandelbrot one of the century's most influential mathematicians. With his fractal models, the (mis)behavior of the world's markets  from the gyrations of IMB's stock price and the Dow, to cotton trading, and the dollarEuro exchange rate  can be understood in more accurate terms than the tired theories of yesteryear." "The (Mis)Behavior of Markets is a reevaluation of the standard tools and models of modern financial theory. Mandelbrot's fresh insights explode the false assumptions that have caused millions of investors, traders, and managers to underestimate the real risk, of the market."Jacket

Fractals, graphics, and mathematics education by M Frame(
Book
)
9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fractal geometry is a recent addition to the collection of mathematical tools for describing nature and the works of Man. It made possible for the first time a national study of roughness. Fractals are encountered in mathematics and many natural sciences, but also in finance and in art, music and literature most often without being consciously included by anyone. Therefore, fractals interconnect the arts and the natural and social sciences in many intrinsic ways. Rarely, if ever, are students exposed to anything like this in mathematics and science classes. This book collects essays about fractal's role in mathematics and science education. In the first four chapters, the editors address general issues. The next twelve chapters are invited case studies authored by educators who began years ago to use fractal geometry in classes that range from second grade elementary school, through public and private high schools, to state universities and private colleges. Some contributors survey literature and software they have used, others present detailed sample lessons. The chapter for Florida Atlantic University reports on a program training teachers in Florida. Many teachers developed fractals courses on their own in isolation from one another. This book is a token of how widespread such courses have become. The common themes that appear throughout mark the coming of age of this subject.  Publisher

Fractals and scaling in finance : discontinuity, concentration, risk : selecta volume E by
Benoit B Mandelbrot(
Book
)
22 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the first book in the Selecta, the collected works of Benoit Mandelbrot. This volume incorporates his original contributions to finance and is a major contribution to the understanding of how speculative prices vary in time. The chapters consist of much new material prepared for this volume, as well as reprints of his classic papers. Much of this work helps to lay a foundation for evaluating risks in trading strategies. Statistical Papers, 2000: " ... this is a most useful collection of Mandelbrot's work economics, it provides an excellent starting point for anybody interested in the origin of many current topics in empirical finance or the distribution of income."

Fractals and chaos : the Mandelbrot set and beyond : selecta volume C by
Benoit B Mandelbrot(
Book
)
16 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher description: It has only been a couple of decades since Benoit Mandelbrot published his famous picture of what is now called the Mandelbrot set. That picture, now seeming graphically primitive, has changed our view of the mathematical and physical universe. The properties and circumstances of the discovery of the Mandelbrot Set continue to generate much interest in the research community and beyond. This book contains the hardtoobtain original papers, many unpublished illustrations dating back to 1979 and extensive documented historical context showing how Mandelbrot helped change our way of looking at the world

Aujourd'hui une nouvelle science du chaos conduit les scientifiques à repenser les idées fondamentales qui expliquent le fonctionnement de l'Univers. Les systèmes obéissant à des lois strictes peuvent, en effet, se conduire d'une manière aléatoire, et aboutir à des résultats qui ne sont ni constants ni prédictibles

Thinking in patterns : fractals and related phenomena in nature by
M. M Novak(
Book
)
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fractal geometry, together with the broader fields of nonlinear dynamics and complexity, represented a large segment of modern science at the end of the 20th century. Penetration of the resulting new paradigms into practically all academic disciplines has confirmed the fundamental assertion of universal formalism common to a wide range of human endeavors. This book contains an extended article by B B Mandelbrot, reviewing his contribution to fractal geometry and outlining some unsolved problems, with illustrations especially of finance and physics. It covers a range of multidisciplinary topics
