The keen-eyed among you have asked why I spell Benoit one way here (and in Chaos) and a different way, with a circumflex atop the i, in the New York Times Magazine.

The answer is that the newspaper of record has erred. There was a complex late-night accident, it seems. Anyway, it’s correct this way: Benoit Mandelbrot. For the record.
