Fractals

There is a ton of information about fractals on the Internet.  Here is a video that I discovered yesterday.  If you consider yourself artistic, you may enjoy the pictures.  For those of you who are mathematically inclined, it may interest you that most of the fractals on this video are graphs on a complex number plane. (The “x-axis” is used to plot the real number part of a given complex number, and the “y-axis” is used to plot the imaginary part of that complex number.)  Most of these complicated-looking graphs are the result of a simple function.
