27500 Mandelbrot           Discovered 2000 Apr. 12 by P. G. Comba at Prescott.
Benoit Mandelbrot (b. 1924) is a French-American mathematician. He has studied geometric and physical structures, to which he gave the name fractals, that are self-similar at different scales. Fractal concepts have found application to many disciplines, from cardiology to the analysis of stock-market prices.
