An overview of this project.
The Mandelbrot set - at barely a quarter century old - is among the most famous images produced by mathematics, and is also among the most important sets to the study of complex dynamics. Mathematicians study this set to try and answer the many open questions. Others simply wish to appreciate its beauty. This website presents both technical and not-so-technical aspects of the Mandelbrot set so that both the uninitiated in mathematics and the seasoned may learn something new.
This website is a term project submitted in partial fulfillment of requirements for the undergraduate course PMATH 370, to Dr. Kevin G. Hare, Faculty of Mathematics, University of Waterloo.
