The time block of 1998-2003 for which the Mandelbrot set was constructed, suits to the range of 1998-2000 identified in this paper as corresponding to limit cycles.
In this work, the Mandelbrot set has been used as a basis to develop the microstrip patch antenna structure.

Probably the most famous examples of fractals are Julia sets and the corresponding "roadmap Mandelbrot set." Let us briefly recall some basic definitions.
The application used for our tests is the well-known Mandelbrot Set. Basically, it consists in a figure composed by a set of points whose boundary is a two-dimensional fractal shape.
Covering in turn real dynamics and complex dynamics, they consider such topics as directional entropies of cellular automaton-maps, a monotonicity conjecture for real cubic maps, self-similarity and hairiness in the Mandelbrot set, the Fibonacci unimodal map, and the mathematical work of Curt McMullen.
Further, a Mandelbrot set calculator is available at ( Like the above discussion of Gauss, we will leave the reader to these sources for calculation.
The system is based on polynomial fractal sets, specifically on the Mandelbrot set. The system meets all the conditions for the construction of hash functions.

To further clarify my point, it will be useful to examine a peculiar resemblance between this narrative construction and a mathematical pattern known as the Mandelbrot set [see Figures 2, 3].
The real interval [-2, 1/4] is the real part of the Mandelbrot set for the family [Q.sub.c].
For example, one may well argue that "five" (the abstract quantity, fiveness) exists apart from us--even if humans had never evolved, you could still have five rocks in a field--and perhaps this extends to fractions and even irrational numbers; but when you start to talk about negative numbers, complex numbers, hypercomplex numbers, infinitesimals, transfinites, matrices, vectors, multi-variable functions, tensors, fields, Galois groups, and the Mandelbrot set the compulsion to regard these as purely mental constructs is overwhelming.
Visualizations of the Mandelbrot Set, the Lorenz Attractor and the Feigenbaum function in the complex plane are stunning and rival many renditions of what are considered more conventional art forms.
