In Memoriam

(sensibility warning: song contains strong language)

From the New York Times:

Benoît B. Mandelbrot, a maverick mathematician who developed an innovative theory of roughness and applied it to physics, biology, finance and many other fields, died on Thursday in Cambridge, Mass. He was 85.

Aww... now I'm all mathematically nostalgic.

All y'all have a good afternoon.
