Author:Matthew Caryl
Description: Both the Mandelbrot Set and Julia Sets are pictorial representations of a simple recurrence formula -- z(n) = z(n - 1) ^ 2 - c -- where values of z and c are complex numbers of the form a + ib and i is the square root of -1. Here both sets can be seen. Choose a point on the Mandelbrot set and see its corresponding Julia set, within variable limits.
