 More about the Mandelbrot Set
The condition for a point's membership of the Mandelbrot Set is that the value remains finite, and a monochrome version of the representation of the set is formed by making the corresponding pixel fl if the point belongs to the set, or white otherwise.
A Julia Set depends on an iteration exactly like that for the Mandelbrot Set except that the initial value of z is the complex number representing the point whose membership is to be tested, and c is a parameter of the set.
The fractal nature of the Mandelbrot Set can be verified by computer generation of the figure with successively greater magnification, and this has been taken to extremes where extra precision of numerical representation is necessary and the enlargement is comparable to that which would reveal individual molecules of a solid object.

 Math Forum - Fractals - Mandelbrot Set   (Site not responding. Last check: )
For some types of functions, the set of numbers that yield chaotic or unpredictable behavior in the plane is called the Julia set after the French mathematician Gaston Julia, who first formulated many of the properties of these sets in the 1920s.
The fl points in graphic representations of these sets are the non-chaotic points, representing values that under iteration eventually tend to cycle between three different points in the plane so that their dynamical behavior is predictable.
First viewed in 1980 by Benoit Mandelbrot and others, the Mandelbrot set completely characterizes the Julia sets of quadratic functions, and has been called one of the most intricate and beautiful objects in mathematics.

 Area of the Mandelbrot Set
The Mandelbrot set (M) has been called the most complex object in mathematics, and continues to be the subject of active research.
Attempts to determine the area of M have generally involved "pixel counting," wherein M is approximated by a set of points or pixels, and the number of points determined to be inside the set is directly related to the area estimate.
Thus, it is concluded that the area of the Mandelbrot set is approximately 1.506484, with a 95% confidence interval from 1.506480 to 1.506488.

 2.3 Mandelbrot Sets
Given a family of complex iterative maps, the set of all parameter values that produce wholly connected Julia sets is determined by the behavior of a single seed value: the origin.
This trick was discovered by the Polish-American mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot and in his honor the set of all parameter values whose Julia sets are wholly connected is called a Mandelbrot set.
Julia sets are slices parallel to the z-axis while the Mandelbrot set is a slice along the c-axis through the origin.

 The Mandelbrot Set
The color of a pixel outside the Mandelbrot set indicates the number n of iterations of (1) that it took until the distance of z(n) from the origin exceeded the square root of 5.
So we are not really drawing the Mandelbrot set itself, only an approximation to it that is the better the larger maxit is. The default value for maxit is 100 which is OK for drawing the whole set, but is too small for drawing small parts of it.
Points outside the Mandelbrot set are assigned a color that is a combination, usually a convex combination, of the RGB values of the colors C and F. Here's another intriguing picture (bay) with lots of interesting parts to explore.

Their colour depends on how many iterations have been required to determine that they are outside the Mandelbrot set, and it can be interpreted as their "distance" from the Mandelbrot set.
In the first case, we say that C belongs to the Mandelbrot set (it is one of the fl points in the image); otherwise, we say that it goes to infinity and we assign a colour to C depending on the speed the point "escapes" from the origin.
In either case, we set a maximum number of iterations, after which we assume it is part of the set (and we paint it fl).

 FRACTINT The Mandelbrot Set
This set is the classic: the only one implemented in many plotting programs, and the source of most of the printed fractal images published in recent years.
Like most of the other types in Fractint, it is simply a graph: the x (horizontal) and y (vertical) coordinate axes represent ranges of two independent quantities, with various colors used to symbolize levels of a third quantity which depends on the first two.
Notice that the boundary of the M-set becomes more and more convoluted (the technical terms are "wiggly," "squiggly," and "utterly bizarre") as the Z-magnitudes for points that were still within the set after 150 iterations turn out to exceed 2 after 200, 500, or 1200.

 Mandelbrot Set
In the Mandelbrot set, nature (or is it mathematics) provides us with a powerful visual counterpart of the musical idea of 'theme and variation': the shapes are repeated everywhere, yet each repetition is somewhat different.
Note important, as it is, the classification of Julia set in terms of disconnected sets, this still doesn't allow one to visualize the shape of the set of points, in the parameter space, for which the Julia set is connected.
