Thanks for the code by the way, that really clears things up.

]]>in a manelbrot set, z[sub]0[/sub] = 0, and c is the point in the complex plane you are graphing

in a julia set z[sub]0[/sub] is the point in the complex plane you are graphing, and c is some constant chosen for the whole fractal which gives you the different julia sets.

code wise they are almost exactly the same aswell, for a mandelbrot you might have

(modsqr(z) = z.r^2 + z.i^2)

```
bool isInMandelbrot(Complex c) {
Complex z;
for(int i = 0; i<MAX_ITERATIONS; i++) {
z = z*z+c;
if(z.modsqr()>4.0) {
return false;
}
}
return true;
}
```

and for julia:

```
Complex c (0.125,-0.8); //random chosen constant
bool isInJulia(Complex z) {
for(int i = 0; i<MAX_ITERATIONS; i++) {
z = z*z+c;
if(z.modsqr()>4.0) {
return false;
}
}
return true;
}
```

I almost put this in the Help Me section, then I thought about the code section, but I thought that this might be appropriate here. I understand how they are created, this wiki was particularly helpful (specifically the code part) but I can't figure out the defferance between the Mandelbrot Sets and the Julia Sets. And because there's no code part on the Julia Stes page I can't even take a guess. The process looks the same in both cases for me.

Unfortunately the formal definitions are simply too technical for me.
