Mandelbrot trivia

Interesting stuff that seems completely useless, until you see it…

Mandelbrot set.
The set of complex c-values for which the orbit of 0 does not escape under iteration of x2 + c. Equivalently, the Mandelbrot set is the set of c-values for which the filled Julia set of x2 + c is a connected set. more...

And people even sing (mp3) about it.

I wonder if every high school math & physics teacher in the state of Iowa nods with appreciation at the sight of Mandelbrot fractals?
