# Is the Mandelbrot set a fractal set?

## Is the Mandelbrot set a fractal set?

The Mandelbrot set is the set of complex numbers c for which the function does not diverge when iterated from z =0, i.e., for which the sequence , etc., remains bounded in absolute value. In simple words, Mandelbrot set is a particular set of complex numbers which has a highly convoluted fractal boundary when plotted.

How many pixels are in a Mandelbrot set image?

Well, it is hard work to calculate this by hand and it would take years to manually calculate a detailed picture. We actually have calculated just 2 pixels of a Mandelbrot-Set image. A full-HD picture has 1920*1080 = 2.073.600 Pixels.

Who is known as the father of fractals?

As the father of fractals, it is of no surprise that the most common and frequently displayed fractals bear his name. Together with Julia sets, the Mandelbrot set provide theoretical foundation for a phenomenon that is again defined by simple rules, but able to generate an infinite picture of beauty and intricacy.

### How to make a fractal in Blender Python?

This entry by Jeremy Behreandt provides an impressively detailed introduction to complex numbers, Mandelbrot Set and much more, and all in Blender’s Python API and Open Shading Language (OSL).

How to draw a Mandelbrot set in C #?

To find the color for the point (x, y), the program sets Z (0) = 0 and C = x + y * i. It then generates values for Z (n) until Z (n)’s magnitude exceeds 2 or it reaches some predetermined maximum number of iterations. At that point, the program uses the number of iterations it performed to assign the point’s color.

When is a complex number C part of the Mandelbrot set?

That is, a complex number c is part of the Mandelbrot set if, when starting with Z 0 = 0 and applying the iteration repeatedly, the absolute value of Z n remains bounded however large n gets. Below given is the initial image of a Mandelbrot set zoom sequence.

#### Is the Mandelbrot set symmetric with respect to the real axis?

The Mandelbrot Set has a finite area but infinite length of border. The Mandelbrot set is symmetric with respect to the real axis. This means if a complex number belongs to the set then its conjugate will also belong to that set. The Mandelbrot set is bounded. The Mandelbrot set is itself similar in a non exact sense.
