Chaos and fractals have revolutionized our view of the world. This book shows examples of the artistic beauty that can arise from very simple equations, and teaches the reader how to produce an endless variety of such patterns.

The authors offer a tutorial on the new mathematical ideas which underlie their research. Many of the ideas in this book will be accessible to a well-trained undergraduate with a good background in mathematics and computer science.

Computers have rapidly become so pervasive in mathematics that future generations may look back to this day as a golden dawn. The article gives a survey of mathematical proofs that rely on computer calculations and formal proofs.
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.
