The (mis)behavior of markets : a fractal view of risk, ruin, and reward by
Benoit B Mandelbrot(
Book
)
58 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,342 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
)
10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 570 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 540 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(

19 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 350 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

Multifractals and 1/f noise : wild selfaffinity in physics (19631976) : selecta volume N by
Benoit B Mandelbrot(
Book
)
22 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Certain noises, many aspects of turbulence, and almost all aspects of finance exhibit a level of temporal and spatial variability whose "wildness" impressed itself vividly upon the author, Benoit Mandelbrot, in the early 1960's. He soon realized that those phenomena cannot be described by simply adapting the statistical techniques of earlier physics, or even extending those techniques slightly. It appeared that the study of finance and turbulence could not move forward without the recognition that those phenomena represented a new second stage of indeterminism. Altogether new mathematical tools were needed. The papers in this Selecta volume reflect that realization and the work that Dr. Mandelbrot did toward the development of those new tools

The concepts of selfsimilarity and scale invariance have arisen independently in several areas. One is the study of the critical properties of phase transitions; another is fractal geometry, which involves the concept of (noninteger) fractal dimension. These two areas have now come together, and their methods have extended to various fields of physics. The purpose of this Symposium was to provide an overview of the physical phenomena that manifest scale invariance and fractal properties with the aim of bringing out the common mathematical features.
