Sekino's Fractal Art Gallery I

The gallery comprises fractal images that can be plotted by standard computer programming described in Stories about Fractal Plotting. The images are classified into four groups:





§ 1. The Mandelbrot Set


The Classical Mandelbrot Set  





The picture shown above is an image given by the Mandelbrot equation zn+1 = zn2 + p and is similar to what Benoit Mandelbrot showed the mathematics world in 1980. The old black and white image vividly reveals a simple but probably the most important fact about the M set (Mandelbrot set): The pattern in a neighborhood of a point outside of the M set grows more and more complex without bound as the point gets nearer the boundary of the M set.

In fact, the M set conceals infinitely many intricate fractal patterns near its boundary. We show several of them here painted by the "true color" technology that became available in the 1990s.

We often paint fractal images on nonplanar surfaces such as tori and spheres. More examples are shown in Gallery II
