Mandelbrot

One line in Coulton’s song isn’t true anymore.

Mandelbrot’s in heaven, at least he will be when he’s dead
Right now he’s still alive and teaching math at Yale

Benoit Mandelbrot’s gone to the set of all sets, and followed a surjection back to his inverse image; he has ceased to be. He will be remembered.
