Caption

Mandelbrot fractal. Computer artwork of the Mandelbrot Set, a group of complex numbers plotted using their real & imaginary parts as coordinates. Each point is assigned a colour depending upon its behaviour under a series of simple, but repeated, mathematical operations. The patterns are infinitely complicated, appearing qualitatively the same on whatever scale they are viewed. A magnification, however large, of any part of the image, produces an image which looks very similar. The study of such "chaotic" mathematical behaviour is becoming important as a means of modelling real-world processes from stock market prices to population dynamics and fluid turbulence.
