AddressEdit
InternalEdit
Internal addresses describe the combinatorial structure of the Mandelbrot set.^{[1]}
Internal address :
 is not constant within hyperbolic component. Example : internal address of 1 is 1>2 and internal address of 0.9999 is 1^{[2]}
 of hyperbolic component is defined as a internal address of it's center
angledEdit
Angled internal address is an extension of internal address
AngleEdit
Types of angleEdit
external angle  internal angle  plain angle  

parameter plane  
dynamic plane 
where :
 is a multiplier map
 is a Boettcher function
externalEdit
The external angle is a angle of point of set's exterior. It is the same on all points on the external ray
internalEdit
The internal angle^{[3]} is an angle of point of component's interior
 it is a rational number and proper fraction measured in turns
 it is the same for all point on the internal ray
 in a contact point ( root point ) it agrees with the rotation number
 root point has internal angle 0
plainEdit
The plain angle is an agle of complex point = it's argument ^{[4]}
UnitsEdit
 turns

 radians
Number typesEdit
Angle ( for example external angle in turns ) can be used in different number types

Description^{[7]}
 plane curve = it lies in a plane.
 closed = it starts and ends at the same place.
 simple = it never crosses itself.
closedEdit
Closed curves are curves whose ends are joined. Closed curves do not have end points.
 Simple Closed Curve : A connected curve that does not cross itself and ends at the same point where it begins. It divides the plane into exactly two regions ( Jordan curve theorem ). Examples of simple closed curves are ellipse, circle and polygons.^{[8]}
 complex Closed Curve ( not simple = nonsimple ) It divides the plane into more than two regions. Example : Lemniscates.
"nonselfintersecting continuous closed curve in plane" = "image of a continuous injective function from the circle to the plane"
CircleEdit

IsocurvesEdit
Equipotential linesEdit
Equipotential lines = Isocurves of complex potential
"If the escape radius is greater than 2 the contour lines are equipotential lines" ^{[18]}
Jordan curveEdit
Jordan curve = a simple closed curve that divides the plane into an "interior" region bounded by the curve and an "exterior" region containing all of the nearby and far away exterior points^{[19]}
LaminationEdit
Lamination of the unit disk is a closed collection of chords in the unit disc, which can intersect only in an endpoint of each on the boundary circle^{[20]}^{[21]}
It is a model of Mandelbrot or Julia set.
A lamination, L, is a union of leaves and the unit circle which satisfies :^{[22]}
 leaves do not cross (although they may share endpoints) and
 L is a closed set.
LeafEdit
Chords = leaves = arcs
A leaf on the unit disc is a path connecting two points on the unit circle. ^{[23]}

First return mapEdit
definition ^{[52]}
"In contrast to a phase portrait, the return map is a discrete description of the underlying dynamics. .... A return map (plot) is generated by plotting one return value of the time series against the previous one "^{[53]}
"If x is a periodic point of period p for f and U is a neighborhood of x, the composition maps U to another neighborhood V of x. This locally defined map is the return map for x." ( W P Thurston : On the geometry and dynamics of Iterated rational maps)
"The first return map S → S is the map defined by sending each x0 ∈ S to the point of S where the orbit of x0 under the system first returns to S." ^{[54]}
"way to obtain a discrete time system from a continuous time system, called the method of Poincar´e sections Poincar´e sections take us from : continuous time dynamical systems on (n + 1)dimensional spaces to discrete time dynamical systems on ndimensional spaces"^{[55]}
Multiplier mapEdit
Multiplier map gives an explicit uniformization of hyperbolic component by the unit disk :
Multiplier map is a conformal isomorphism.^{[56]}
Rotation mapEdit
Rotation map describes counterclockwise rotation of point thru turns on the unit circle :
It is used for computing :
Shift mapEdit
names :
 bit shift map ( because it shifts the bit ) = if the value of an iterate is written in binary notation, the next iterate is obtained by shifting the binary point one bit to the right, and if the bit to the left of the new binary point is a "one", replacing it with a zero.
 2x mod 1 map ( because it is math description of it's action )
Shift map (onesided binary left shift ) acts on onesided infinite sequence of binary numbers by
It just drops first digit of the sequence.
If we treat sequence as a binary fraction :
then shift map = the dyadic transformation = dyadic map = bit shift map= 2x mod 1 map = Bernoulli map = doubling map = sawtooth map
and "shifting N places left is the same as multiplying by 2 to the power N (written as 2N)"^{[57]} ( operator << )

Rotation numberEdit
The rotation number^{[59]}^{[60]}^{[61]}^{[62]}^{[63]} of the disk ( component) attached to the main cardioid of the Mandelbrot set is a proper, positive rational number p/q in lowest terms where :
 q is a period of attached disk ( child period ) = the period of the attractive cycles of the Julia sets in the attached disk
 p descibes fc action on the cycle : fc turns clockwise around z0 jumping, in each iteration, p points of the cycle ^{[64]}
Features :
 in a contact point ( root point ) it agrees with the internal angle
 the rotation numbers are ordered clockwise along the boundary of the componant
 " For parameters c in the p/qlimb, the filled Julia set Kc has q components at the fixed point αc . These are permuted cyclically by the quadratic polynomial fc(z), going p steps counterclockwise " Wolf Jung

OrbitEdit
Orbit is a sequence of points = trajectory
BackwardEdit
CriticalEdit
Forward orbit^{[66]} of a critical point^{[67]}^{[68]} is called a critical orbit. Critical orbits are very important because every attracting periodic orbit^{[69]} attracts a critical point, so studying the critical orbits helps us understand the dynamics in the Fatou set.^{[70]}^{[71]} ^{[72]}
This orbit falls into an attracting periodic cycle.

Generalized Feigenbaum points are :
 the limit of the periodq cascade of bifurcations
 landing points of parameter ray or rays with irrational angles
Examples :
 .1528+1.0397i)
The Mandelbrot set is conjectured to be self similar around generalized Feigenbaum points^{[99]} when the magnification increases by 4.6692 (the Feigenbaum Constant) and period is doubled each time^{[100]}

Bifurcation parameter is a root point of period = 2^n component. This series converges to the Feigenbaum point c = −1.401155
The ratio in the last column converges to the first Feigenbaum constant.
" a "Feigenbaum point" (an infinitely renormalizable parameter of bounded type, such as the famous Feigenbaum value which is the limit of the period2 cascade of bifurcations), then Milnor's hairiness conjecture, proved by Lyubich, states that rescalings of the Mandelbrot set converge to the entire complex plane. So there is certainly a lot of thickness near such a point, although again this may not be what you are looking for. It may also prove computationally intensive to produce accurate pictures near such points, because the usual algorithms will end up doing the maximum number of iterations for almost all points in the picture." Lasse RempeGillen^{[101]}
infinityEdit
The point at infinity ^{[102]}" is a superattracting fixed point, but more importantly its immediate basin of attraction  that is, the component of the basin containing the fixed point itself  is completely invariant (invariant under forward and backwards iteration). This is the case for all polynomials (of degree at least two), and is one of the reasons that studying polynomials is easier than studying general rational maps (where e.g. the Julia set  where the dynamics is chaotic  may in fact be the whole Riemann sphere). The basin of infinity supports foliations into "external rays" and "equipotentials", and this allows one to study the Julia set. This idea was introduced by Douady and Hubbard, and is the basis of the famous "Yoccoz puzzle"." Lasse RempeGillen^{[103]}
MisiurewiczEdit
Misiurewicz point^{[104]} = " parameters where the critical orbit is preperiodic.

 has a rotational number 0
 it is a biaccesible point ( landing point of 2 external rays )
singularEdit
the singular points of a dynamical system
In complex analysis there are four classes of singularities:
 Isolated singularities: Suppose the function f is not defined at a, although it does have values defined on U \ {a}.
 The point a is a removable singularity of f if there exists a holomorphic function g defined on all of U such that f(z) = g(z) for all z in U \ {a}. The function g is a continuous replacement for the function f.
 The point a is a pole or nonessential singularity of f if there exists a holomorphic function g defined on U with g(a) nonzero, and a natural number n such that f(z) = g(z) / (z − a)^{n} for all z in U \ {a}. The least such number n is called the order of the pole. The derivative at a nonessential singularity itself has a nonessential singularity, with n increased by 1 (except if n is 0 so that the singularity is removable).
 The point a is an essential singularity of f if it is neither a removable singularity nor a pole. The point a is an essential singularity if and only if the Laurent series has infinitely many powers of negative degree.
 Branch points are generally the result of a multivalued function, such as or being defined within a certain limited domain so that the function can be made singlevalued within the domain. The cut is a line or curve excluded from the domain to introduce a technical separation between discontinuous values of the function. When the cut is genuinely required, the function will have distinctly different values on each side of the branch cut. The shape of the branch cut is a matter of choice, however, it must connect two different branch points (like and for ) which are fixed in place.
PortraitEdit
orbit portraitEdit
typesEdit
There are two types of orbit portraits: primitive and satellite. ^{[111]}If is the valence of an orbit portrait and is the recurrent ray period, then these two types may be characterized as follows:
 Primitive orbit portraits have and . Every ray in the portrait is mapped to itself by . Each is a pair of angles, each in a distinct orbit of the doubling map. In this case, is the base point of a baby Mandelbrot set in parameter space.
 Satellite ( nonprimitive ) orbit portraits have . In this case, all of the angles make up a single orbit under the doubling map. Additionally, is the base point of a parabolic bifurcation in parameter space.
Processes and phenomenonaEdit
Contraction and dilatationEdit
 the contraction z → z/2
 the dilatation z → 2z.
Implosion and explosionEdit
Implosion is :
 the process of sudden change of quality fuatures of the object, like collapsing (or being squeezed in)
 the opposite of explosion
Example : parabolic implosion in complex dynamics, when filled Julia for complex quadratic polynomial set looses all its interior ( when c goes from 0 along internal ray 0 thru parabolic point c=1/4 and along extrnal ray 0 = when c goes from interior , crosses the bounday to the exterior of Mandelbrot set)^{[112]}
Explosion is a :
 is a sudden change of quality fuatures of the object in an extreme manner,
 the opposite of implosion
Example : in exponential dynamics when λ> 1/e , the Julia set of is the entire plane.^{[113]}

Hyperbolic component of Mandelbrot setEdit
Domain is an open connected subset of a complex plane.
"A hyperbolic component H of Mandelbrot set is a maximal domain (of parameter plane) on which has an attracting periodic orbit.
A center of a H is a parameter ( or point of parameter plane ) such that the corresponding periodic orbit has multiplier= 0." ^{[126]}

Components of dynamical planeEdit
In case of Siegel disc critical orbit is a boundary of component containing Siegel Disc.
DomainEdit
Domain in mathematical analysis it is an open connected set
Jordan domainEdit
"A Jordan domain^{[128]} J is the the homeomorphic image of a closed disk in E2. The image of the boundary circle is a Jordan curve, which by the Jordan Curve Theorem separates the plane into two open domains, one bounded, the other not, such that the curve is the boundary of each." ^{[129]}
Dwell bandsEdit
"Dwell bands are regions where the integer iteration count is constant, when the iteration count decreases (increases) by 1 then you have passed a dwell band going outwards (inwards). " ^{[130]} Other names:
 level sets of integer escape time
FlowerEdit
InvariantEdit
"A subset S of the domain Ω is an invariant set for the system (7.1) if the orbit through a point of S remains in S for all t ∈ R. If the orbit remains in S for t > 0, then S will be said to be positively invariant. Related definitions of sets that are negatively invariant, or locally invariant, can easily be given" ^{[131]}

 invariant point = fixed point
 invariant cycle = periodic point
 invariant circle
 petal = invariant planar set
Level setEdit

Target setEdit
Elliptic caseEdit
For the elliptic dynamics, when there is a Siegel disc, the target set is an inner circle
Hyperbolic caseEdit
Infinity is allways hyperbolic attractor for forward iteration of polynomials. Target set here is an exterior of any shape containing all point of Julia set ( and it's interior). There are also other hyperbolic attractors.
In case of forward iteration target set is an arbitrary set on dynamical plane containing infinity and not containing points of filled Julia set.
For escape time algorithms target set determines the shape of level sets and curves. It does not do it for other methods.
Exterior of circleEdit
This is typical target set. It is exterior of circle with center at origin and radius =ER :
Radius is named escape radius ( ER ) or bailout value.
Circle of radius=ER centered at the origin is :
Exterior of squareEdit
Here target set is exterior of square of side length centered at origin
Parabolic case : petalEdit
In the parabolic case target set shoul be iside petal
TrapEdit
Trap is an another name of the target set. It is a set which captures any orbit tending to point inside the trap ( fixed / periodic point ).

TestEdit
Bailout test or escaping testEdit
It is used to check if point z on dynamical plane is escaping to infinity or not.^{[135]} It allows to find 2 sets :
 escaping points ( it should be also the whole basing of attraction to infinity)^{[136]}
 not escaping points ( it should be the complement of basing of attraction to infinity)
In practice for given IterationMax and Escape Radius :
 some pixels from set of not escaping points may contain points that escape after more iterations then IterationMax ( increase IterMax )
 some pixels from escaping set may contain points from thin filaments not choosed by maping from integer to world ( use DEM )
If is in the target set then is escaping to infinity ( bailouts ) after n forward iterations ( steps).^{[137]}
The output of test can be :
 boolean ( yes/no)
 integer : integer number (value of the last iteration)
Attraction testEdit

Farey treeEdit
Farey tree = Farey sequence as a tree
Hubbard treeEdit
"Hubbard trees are finite planar trees, equipped with selfmaps, which classify postcritically finite polynomials as holomorphic dynamical systems on the complex plane." ^{[138]}
