Extracts from this document...


This is a graph of the original equation, in the form x = g (x), I am investigating:

0 = 3x^5 - 3x + 1

The Rearrangement method, firstly, draws a vertical line between the 2 curves. When it reaches the second curve, another line is drawn horizontally. This carries on until a value of the function is calculated to the required accuracy. However, for this method to work, the gradient

    Now, in order to visualize the Mandelbrot set as a fractal, we need to shift from real numbers to imaginary numbers. Mandelbrot used a complex plane as his graph, rather than the regular Cartesian plane. The x-axis of the plane consisted of real numbers, while the y-axis contained imaginary numbers.
