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.]

Kilyachkov, Chaldaeva, & Kilyachkov (2018) suggested another method, based on analyzing the structure of the Mandelbrot set of DDM, but there is a need for more careful research of how one can use it.
Among the details are revisiting billiards on the square table, counting periodic orbits, the Mandelbrot set from the inside out, and the entry fee: a crash course in probability theory.
The Mandelbrot set, graphically, can be divided into an infinite set of cardioids, with the largest of them located at the center of the complex plane.
In the article [5] Giarrusso and Fisher used it for the parameterization of the period 3 hyperbolic components of the Mandelbrot set. Later, in the article [2], Erkama studied the case of the period 3-4 hyperbolic components of the Mandelbrot set on the (x, y)-plane and completely solved both cases.
The most famous example is probably that this equality holds for the Mandelbrot set. In addition, there are various other situations where box-counting and Hausdorff dimension coincide [35, 36].

De Bruijn sequences, the Gilbreath Principle (which lets the spectator shuffle a normal deck of cards with them still staying in an order that the magician can predict) and their connection with the Mandelbrot set (identical patterns that make up a larger identical pattern) are discussed in some detail and their applications in magic tricks dealt with.
