贝诺瓦·曼德布洛特

    Benoit B.Mandelbrot是出生于波兰的法国和美国数学家和多面手,对实用科学有着广泛的兴趣,尤其是他所称的物理现象的“粗糙艺术”和“生命中不受控制的元素”。

贝诺瓦·曼德布洛特(Benoit Mandelbrot)名言

There is a joke that your hammer will always find nails to hit. I find that perfectly acceptable.

有一个笑话说你的锤子总能找到钉子打。我觉得这完全可以接受。

Think of color, pitch, loudness, heaviness, and hotness. Each is the topic of a branch of physics.

想想颜色、音高、响度、沉重和热度。每一个都是物理学分支的主题。

Until a few years ago, the topics in my Ph.D. were unfashionable, but they are very popular today.

直到几年前,在我的博士论文中。以前不流行,但现在很流行。

When I first began studying prices, it wasn't a topic that mathematicians were working on. Purely by accident, I saw a set of data on price changes presented in a lecture and realized they behaved similarly to the geometric models I was already studying.

当我刚开始研究价格时,这不是数学家们正在研究的课题。纯粹出于偶然,我在一次讲座中看到了一组关于价格变化的数据,并意识到它们的行为与我正在研究的几何模型类似。

Most economists, when modeling market behavior, tend to sweep major fluctuations under the rug and assume they are anomalies. What I have found is that major rises and falls in prices are actually inevitable.

大多数经济学家在为市场行为建模时,倾向于掩盖重大波动,并假设它们是异常现象。我发现,物价的大起大落实际上是不可避免的。

An exquisitely complex shape now known as the Mandlebrot set has been called the most complex object in mathematics.

一个非常复杂的形状,现在被称为曼德尔伯特集,被称为数学中最复杂的对象。

Where do I really belong? I avoid saying everywhere - which switches all too easily to nowhere. Instead, when pressed, I call myself a fractalist.

我真正属于哪里?我避免说任何地方-这太容易切换到任何地方。相反,当我被追问时,我称自己为一个骨折专家。

Father was bold, and Mother was cautious. They never shouted at each other but argued constantly about strategy, and they taught me very early that before taking big risks, one must carefully figure the odds.

父亲大胆,母亲谨慎。他们从不互相大喊大叫,而是不断地争论策略,他们很早就告诉我,在冒大风险之前,必须仔细估计胜算。
