Whose got an easy, fun Java fractal program we can play with?

Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

Mandelbrot, a classic fractal example. It was one of my java programming homeworks in my first semester. At that time I knew neither java nor the algorithm, simply copied the source code from my classmates .

**is**honest! What a cool app. The source code is available on the web page, and I was amazed at how

Julia set An interactive java applet written by Mr. Ron Mak. Source code downloadable.

Mathematicans investigate fractals to simulate dynamic systems and the natural patterns. Fractals are also widely used in the field of computer graphic, the algorithm doesn't often appear complex but the resulting image is almost always amazing. The beauty of numerical computing.
