Site redesign today. Testing the "open graph" sharing features.
The mother of all complex, two dimensional, iterated sets is the Mandelbrot set. The word mother was chosen quite deliberately. The Mandelbrot set corresponds to the set of all Julia sets that are closed (i.e., not dust like). Well, that's one way to think of it. This page describes the methods for constructing the Mandelbrot set and some of its interesting features. This page has more images than any other in The Chaos Hypertextbook.
