One of the most intricate and beautiful images in all of mathematics is the Julia set, discovered by the french mathematician Gaston Julia.
Most people within the mathematics community, and many people outside of the discipline, have seen this image and have marveled at its geometric intricacy.
The Julia set is a particular mathematical set of points,
whose boundary generates a two-dimensional fractal shape.
Images of the Julia set display an elaborate boundary that reveals progressively ever-finer recursive detail at increasing magnifications.
The "style" of this repeating detail depends on the region of the set being examined.
This application lets you enter in the Julia set, and repeatedly zoom in it, to generate many wonderful and spectacular images.
