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 .

Man, that is honest! What a cool app. The source code is available on the web page, and I was amazed at how little code is necessary to make such a beautiful image! Thank you, Ellen.

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.
