“How Long Is the Coast of Britain? Statistical Self-Similarity and Fractional Dimension” is a paper by mathematician Benoît Mandelbrot, first published in Science in 1967. In this paper, Mandelbrot discusses self-similar curves that have Hausdorff dimension between 1 and 2. These curves are examples of fractals, although Mandelbrot does not use this term in the paper, as he did not coin it until 1975. The paper is one of Mandelbrot's first publications on the topic of fractals.
