  • The Mandelbrot Set - A K Dewdney
    number within its tiny domain namely the one at its northeast corner the behavior of this number then represents the behavior of the entire pixel Successive enlargements of the shepherd s crook in region a of the image on the preceding page The scheme for assigning colors requires that the range of count values attained within the array be grouped into subranges one subrange for each color Pixels for which the size of z reaches 2 after only a few iterations are colored red Pixels for which the size of z reaches 2 after relatively many iterations are colored violet at the other end of the spectrum Pixels for which the size of z is less than 2 even after 1 000 iterations are assumed to lie in the Mandelbrot set they are colored black A compound eye peering out from a region of image d on the opposite page A miniature Mandelbrot in region f on page 17 tethered to the main set by a filament It makes sense to leave the colors unspecified until the range of count values in a particular square has been determined If the range is narrow the entire color spectrum can then be assigned within that range Thus Hubbard suggests that in step 4 only the value of count be assigned to each array element of pic A separate program can then scan the array determine the high and low values of count and assign the spectrum accordingly Readers who get this far will certainly find workable schemes The reader who does not have a color monitor can still take part in black and white Complex numbers for which z is larger than 2 after r iterations are colored white The rest are colored black Adjust r to taste To avoid all night runs the array can be say 100 rows by 100 columns Hubbard also suggests it is perfectly reasonable to reduce the maximum number of iterations per point from 1 000 to 100 The output of such a program is a suggestive pointillistic image of its colored counterpart see illustration below How powerful is the zoom lens of a personal computer It depends to some degree on the effective size of the numbers the machine can manipulate For example according to Magi my microcomputer amanuensis at the University of Western Ontario the IBM PC uses the 8088 microprocessor a chip manufactured by the Intel Corporation designed to manipulate 16 bit numbers A facility called double precision makes it possible to increase the length of each number to 32 bits With such double precision Magi and I calculate that magnifications on the order of 30 000 times can be realized Higher precision software that in effect strings these numbers together can enhance the numerical precision to hundreds of significant digits The magnification of the Mandelbrot set theoretically attainable with such precision is far greater than the magnification needed to resolve the nucleus of the atom Where should one explore the complex plane Near the Mandelbrot set of course but where precisely Hubbard says that there are zillions of beautiful spots Like a tourist in a land of infinite beauty he bubbles with suggestions about places readers may want to explore They do not have names like Hawaii or Hong Kong Try the area with the real part between 26 and 27 and the imaginary part between 0 and 01 He has also suggested two other places Real Part Imaginary Part 76 to 74 01 to 03 1 26 to 1 24 01 to 03 The reader who examines the color images accompanying this article should bear in mind that any point having a color other than black does not belong to the Mandelbrot set Much of the beauty resides in the halo of colors assigned to the fleeing points Indeed if one were to view the set in isolation its image might not be so pleasing the set is covered all over with filaments and with miniature versions of itself Pointillist miniature Mandelbrot generated by a monochrome monitor In fact none of the miniature Mandelbrots are exact copies of the parent set and none of them are exactly alike Near the parent set there are even more miniature Mandelbrots apparently suspended freely in the complex plane The appearance is deceiving An amazing theorem proved by Hubbard and a colleague Adrian Douady of the University of Paris states that the Mandelbrot set is connected Hence even the miniature Mandelbrots that seem to be suspended in the plane are attached by filaments to the parent set The minatures are found almost everywhere near the parent set and they come in all sizes Every square in the region includes an infinite number of them of which at most only a few are visible at any given magnification According to Hubbard the Mandelbrot set is the most complicated object in mathematics Readers with a simple appetite for more color images of the Mandelbrot set and other mathematical objects can write to Hubbard for a brochure Department of Mathematics Cornell University Ithaca N Y 14853 The brochure includes an order form with which one can buy 16 inch square color prints that are similar in quality to the Peitgen images shown here Confronted with infinite complexity it is comforting to take refuge in the finite Iterating a squaring process on a finite set of ordinary integers also gives rise to interesting structures The structures are not geometric but combinatorial Pick any number at random from 0 through 99 Square it and extract the last two digits of the result which must also be a number from 0 through 99 For example 59 2 is equal to 3 481 the last two digits are 81 Repeat the process and sooner or later you will generate a number you have already encountered For example 81 leads to the sequence 61 21 41 and 81 and this sequence of four numbers is then repeated indefinitely It turns out that such
