Mandelbrot’s Following Me

No seriously. First I get introduced to this song, which is all about Mandelbrot and his contributions to chaos theory. Then, this morning I watched yesterday’s Rocketboom, which was all about Mandelbrot and fractals and chaos theory, and then–then–this afternoon as I was reading out of one of my turbulence textbooks, I came across this:

“For large n, the discrepancies [in the scaling of the structure function] are attributed to the deficiencies in the log-normal assumption, which has been roundly criticized by Mandelbrot (1974) and others.” #

My brain hurts. Is it the concept, the paranoia, or the fact that I’ve been clenching my jaw day and night for days now?
