Abstract
In this brief note describes the trajectory of the fractal models / multifractal F / M by Benoit Mandelbrot. The promise was discovered by the geometry of Mandelbrot covers a broad area of research fields, from meteorology and mathematical physics to the individual and collective behavior in society, besides his contributions to the analysis of the financial crisis in his wonderful essay on The (mis) Behavior of Markets. A fractal view of Risk, Ruin and Reward (2004).
