Benoît Mandelbrot Died at Age 85

Just after Eddy and I used the Mandelbrot set as benchmark [1] in our DSL tutorial, Benoît Mandelbrot died. The Franco-American mathematician, who is most well-known for popularizing fractal geometry, died at the age of 85.

Thank you for giving us such a visually appealing way of demonstrating our optimization for embarrassingly parallel loops.
