The purpose of this book is to show how the computer can draw technically perfect pictures of Julia and Mandelbrot sets. All the necessary theory is explained and some words are said about how to put the things into a computer program.
The aim of this text is to develop an informal, light introduction to the world of fractal geometry and to inspire further research into the subject, whether your interest is of a pure, applied or even recreational nature.
