/************************************************************************** * FRACTALS: SET OF MANDELBROT * * ----------------------------------------------------------------------- * * TUTORIAL: * * * * The set of Mandelbrot is a figure in the complex plane, that is (for no * * mathematicians) the plane allowing to represent complex numbers having * * the form a + i b, a is the real part (ox componant) and b is the * * imaginary part (oy componant). The imaginary number i is the unity of * * axis oy, defined as i x i = -1. In the following, we will use the * * multiplication of two complex numbers and the module value of a complex * * number before defining the set of Mandelbrot itself. * * * * Multiply z1 by z2 * * * * Let be z1 = a1 + i b1 and z2 = a2 + i b2, two complex numbers. To cal- * * culate Z = z1 x z2, one just has to algebraically develop the expression* * (a1 + i b1)*(a2 + i b2), replacing i² by -1 and separating constant * * terms from i terms. One easily obtains: * * * * Z = (a² - b²) + i (2ab) * * * * Module of a complex number * * * * Every complex number a + i b can be represented as the point of coordi- * * nates (a, b) in the complex plane. Its module is nothing other than the * * distance of this point from origin (0,0), that is to say: * * * * | Z | = square root of (a² + b²) * * * * We can now define the iterative process that will lead us to the magni- * * ficent "Set of Mandelbrot": * * * * We take, as a starting point, a fixed complex number c, and we calculate* * the complex expression z² + c, z being a variable complex number. * * Let us take z = 0, then z² + c equals c. Let us replace z by c in the * * formula z² + c, then we obtain c² + c. Let us again remplace z by this * * new value, then we obtain (c²+c)² + c. Such a process is indefinitly * * resumed, each new value z² + c is taken as new value z. This provides * * an unlimited series of z numbers. * * * * The mathematician Mandelbrot was the first to notice that, according to * * the chosen value c, the series of complex numbers z so obtained could * * have a module, either rapidly tending towards infinity, or tending * * towards a finite value, whatever the number of iterations may be. * * * * Two examples: * * * * 1) c = 1 + i * * * * iteration new z module of z * * ____________________________________________ * * 1 1 + 3i 3,16227... * * 2 -7 + 7i 9,89949... * * 3 1-97i 97,00515... * * 4 -9407-193i 9408,97965 * * * * The module of z increases very rapidly. * * * * 2) c = -1 + 0,25 i * * * * iteration new z module de z * * ____________________________________________ * * 1 -0,5 - 0i 0,5 * * 2 -0,25 + 0,5i 0,55902... * * 3 -0,687 + 0,25i 0,73154... * * * * At 80th iteration, z = 0.40868 + 0,27513 i, the module equals 0,49266...* * The module remains with a finite value, whatever the number of itera- * * tions may be. Practically, we will consider that the limit is obtained * * after 100 iterations, if the module of z is < 4. The set of Mandelbrot, * * still called the Mandelbrot man, because of its shape, is constituted * * by all the points for which the expression z² + c has a finite value * * whatever the number of iterations may be. * * * * See also programs mandbrot.pas and julia.pas. * * * * ----------------------------------------------------------------------- * * REFERENCE: * * "Graphisme dans le plan et dans l'espace avec Turbo Pascal 4.0 * * By R.
