|Description||Mandelbrot is a program that allows you to view and zoom
in and out of the mandelbrot set. The mandelbrot set is a mathematic
representation of a subset of the complex plane. Put simply, the
mandelbrot set is a picture generated by a math formula. It was discovered
in the 1970s by Benoit Mandelbrot. The mandelbrot set itself is not a
fractal, but it's boundary is a fractal.
|Use||Viewing the border of the mandelbrot set can be a very enjoying
experience. Use the mouse to zoom in and out of the mandelbrot set. A
left mouse click zooms in, a right click zooms out, and a click of the
"wheel" (or middle mouse button for 3 button mice) will center the
image. Use the options to configure the color of the set, the size,
zoom rates, and more. The "Max Iterations" adjusts the math formula
used to generate the set. The higher the number the more detail the
mandelbrot set will have, but the longer it will take to generate.
Once you have found a particularly interesting area of the set, save
it as a bitmap picture or "bookmark" the spot to return there later.
If you leave an area of the mandelbrot set without saving it, it may
be nearly impossible to find it again.
