|The Mandelbrot set is the the set of all complex numbers z for which sequence defined by the iteration z(0) = z, z(n+1) = z(n)*z(n) + z, n=0,1,2, ... Its boundary exhibits complicated structure at all length scales from about 1 down to zero: it is a fractal. You can experiment with this set yourself using the applet (the implementation of a Java code on a web page) on this page. To do so you need to have a Java compatible browser such as a recent version of Netscape or Explorer.|
