Man·del·brot set

 (män′dəl-brŏt′)
n.
The set of complex numbers C for which the iteration zn+1 = zn2 + C produces finite zn for all n when started at z0 = 0. The boundary of the Mandelbrot set is a fractal.

[After Benoit B. Mandelbrot (1924-2010), Polish-born American mathematician.]

Mandelbrot set

(ˈmændəlˌbrɒt)
n
(Mathematics) maths a set of points in the complex plane that is self-replicating according to some predetermined rule such that the boundary of the set has fractal dimensions, used in the study of fractal geometry and in producing patterns in computer graphics
