R.I.P. Benoit Mandelbrot

Benoit Mandelbrot passed away on Thursday at the age of 85. He last talked about his work at TED2010 earlier this year.

I remember being fascinated by images of the Mandelbrot set when I was a child and I did a series of articles last year on how to create them using GNU Octave so if you want to have a go yourself, feel free to grab the code and follow the examples.
