Mandelbrot and Newton fractal varieties

Mandelbrot and Newton fractal are a type of fractal that iterates a function and see if it converges.

Fractal Domain

Fractal Domain by Denis C De Mars. (2003-10,2011-02) Mac OS X

Fractal Domain is one of the best fractal program on the Mac as of 2003. It can plot Mandelbrot and Julia sets, but also arbitrary formula for Rational, Newton, Harley types of fractals. It has a color map editor, and also parameter adjustments such as dwell value and orbit. It comes with a comprehensive documentation that explains the basic math of various fractal types and the program details. Author is Dennis C De Mars.
