The world has lost one of it's greatest geniuses.

Sad day for the world, especially the world of mathematics.

Oh well, it had to happen someday. I hope he died peacefully.
I have yet to see any artist produce something more beautiful than the mandelbrot fractal.

A prominent mathematician has died. I guess *sunglasses* his number was up.

Anyway, it's very sad news. The man was a legend, and he went out while he was still brilliant, which is better than a slow decline of one's mental faculties.

Coincidentally I just had The Fractal Geometry of Nature on my desk when I read this.
