Mandelbrot: Mathematics


„A contribution to mathematics and/or science does not consist of a picture, but rather of a picture combined with a description. Without words and formulas, a picture can, at best, be praised for artistic quality. Without an interest in pictures and other aspects of ‚reality,‘ pictures can play no role whatsoever.“ (p. 26) #Mandelbrot #mathematics #picture
