Then. The sound of one temple bell.
Morning. The cathedral bells playing a song.
Afternoon. Mail brings me so many questions.
Evening. No answers over dinner. More wine.
Night. Alone. Thankfully, the compass points nowhere.
The Mandelbrot set is the set of complex numbers that I won’t attempt to explain that was defined by Adrien Douady who named it in tribute to the mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot, a pioneer of fractal geometry.
Images of the Mandelbrot set show an infinitely complicated boundary that reveals progressively ever-finer recursive detail at increasing magnifications, making the boundary of the Mandelbrot set a fractal curve that goes to infinity.
The Mandelbrot set has become popular outside mathematics both for its aesthetic appeal and as an example of a complex structure arising from the application of simple rules. It is one of the best-known examples of mathematical visualization and mathematical beauty and motif.
