Benoit B. Mandelbrot, much much more than a mathematician, passes away at 85...
He wrote : "The Fractal Geometry of Nature," published in 1982 (see what I mean?)
He said that he "Went into fields where mathematicians would never go because the problems were badly stated," Mandelbrot said. "I have played a strange role that none of my students dare to take."
