Put simply, fractal geometry makes the complex simple. In this book the authors apply fractal geometry to the workings of financial markets. They show how stock prices, indexes, trading & exchange rates can be reduced to straightforward formulae that yield an accurate description of risk. This new edition includes material on the current market crisis, calling for an end to the tunnel vision of our bankers whose over-confidence in their understanding of markets ended in catastrophe. Benoit Mandelbrot is Sterling Professor of Mathematical Sciences at Yale University. Richard L. Hudson is a former managing editor of Wall Street Journal Europe.
