The (mis)behavior of markets : a fractal view of risk, ruin, and reward by Benoit B Mandelbrot( Book )

49 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 1,206 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 dollar-Euro 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 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 548 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 )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 358 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 hard-to-obtain 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
Multifractals and 1/f noise : wild self-affinity in physics (1963-1976) : selecta volume N by Benoit B Mandelbrot( Book )

23 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a major contribution to an understanding of wild variability and randomness along two wide open frontiers of physics. Specially written introductions provide a new synthesis and historical background, and organize the twenty-odd reprints of works that first appeared from 1962 to 1976

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 )

6 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

Clouds are not spheres( Visual )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 27 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
The islands of Benoît Mandelbrot : fractals, chaos, and the materiality of thinking( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past few decades, the "pictorial turn" in the natural sciences, prompted by the computer's capacity to produce visual representations, has generated considerable theoretical interest. Poised between their materiality and the abstract level they are meant to convey, scientific images are always intersections of form and meaning. Benoît Mandelbrot (1924-2010), one of the best-known producers of digital images in scientific and industrial research, was particularly curious about the ways in which the materiality of scientific representation was able to influence the development of the ideas and abstractions the images embodied. Using images and objects found in Mandelbrot's office, this book questions the relationship between the visual and scientific reasoning in fractal geometry and chaos theory, among the most popular fields to use digital scientific imagery in the past century. These unpublished materials offer new connections between the material world and that of mathematical ideas. Work by Adrien Douady and Otto Rössler provides historical depth to the analysis"--
