Matthew Caryl  
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.
