Mandelbrot Set Model Documents
The Mandelbrot Set model displays a set of points, c, in the complex plane that keep the function, z2 + c, bounded. The function is generated by starting with value of c and an initial value for z, and generating the resulting complex number from the function z2 + c. The result of the function them becomes the new z to be substituted back into the function. This process is repeated until it is clear the function is bounded or unbounded by the initial choice of c. By click-dragging in the plot you can magnify the selected region of the Mandelbrot set. You can modify this simulation if you have Ejs installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.
