Address Edit
"Internal addresses encode kneading sequences in humanreadable form, when extended to angled internal addresses they distinguish hyperbolic components in a concise and meaningful way. The algorithms are mostly based on Dierk Schleicher's paper Internal Addresses Of The Mandelbrot Set And Galois Groups Of Polynomials (version of February 5, 2008) http://arxiv.org/abs/math/9411238v2." Claude HeilandAllen^{[1]}

Internal Edit
 the internal address of a hyperbolic component A lists the periods of certain components that are “on the way” from the main cardioid to hyperbolic component A^{[3]}
 Internal addresses describe the combinatorial structure of the Mandelbrot set.^{[4]} It is one of the Analytical Naming Systems^{[5]}^{[6]}
 the ancestral route of a hyperbolic component is the ordered sequence of all its ancestors
Internal address:
 is not constant within hyperbolic component. Example: internal address of 1 is 1>2 and internal address of 0.9999 is 1^{[7]}
 of hyperbolic component is defined as a internal address of it's center
The internal address is describing a kneading sequence by increasing periods.^{[8]}
These correspond to hyperbolic components in M, where the kneading sequence is changing.
Example:
 AABA∗ is obtained by changing A → AAB → AABA∗ , so the internal address is 135. Conversely, the internal address 135 gives A → AAB → AABA∗ .
angled Edit
Angled internal address is an extension of internal address. The angled internal address of the end of a finite chain of child bulbs would be:
Examples:
 describes period 6 component which is a satelite of period 3 component.

In geometry, a geodesic is a curve representing in some sense the shortest path (arc) between two points in a surface^{[27]}

Lamination Edit
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^{[35]}^{[36]}
It is a model of Mandelbrot or Julia set.
A lamination, L, is a union of leaves and the unit circle which satisfies:^{[37]}
 leaves do not cross (although they may share endpoints) and
 L is a closed set.
"The pattern of rays landing together can be described by a lamination of the disk. As θ is varied, the diameter defined by θ/2 and (θ +1)/2 is moving and disconnecting or reconnecting chords. " Wolf Jung ^{[38]}
Leaf Edit
Chords = leaves = arcs
A leaf on the unit disc is a path connecting two points on the unit circle.^{[39]}
"In Thurston’s fundamental preprint, the two characteristic rays and their common landing point are the “minor leaf” of a “lamination”"^{[40]}

Ray Edit
Rays are:
 invariant curves
 dynamic or parameter
 external, internal or extended
Extended Edit
"We prolong an external ray R θ supporting a Fatou component U (ω) up to its center ω through an internal ray and call the resulting set the extended ray E θ with argument θ." Alfredo Poirier^{[41]}
External ray Edit
The closure of an external ray is called a closed ray. If ray lands, then the closure of the ray is the union of the external ray and its landing point.^{[42]}
"A ray R is said to land or converge, if the accumulation set is a singleton subset of J. The conjecture that the Mandelbrot set is locally connected is equivalent to the continuous landing of all external rays."^{[43]}
where:
 is a closure of = the bar is taken to mean the closure rather than the complex conjugate
 MLC = Mandelbrot Local connectivity Conjecture: M is locally connected^{[44]}
 singelton set is a set with exactly one element
"If the MLC were proved true, the theorem of Caratheodory would give us an extension of the Riemann map to , giving a conformal equivalence of M with D. Given the fractal nature of M, this would be a very surprising result.^{[45]}
A dynamic periodic ray pair is called characteristic if it separates the critical value from all rays and for all k ≥ 1 (except of course from those on the ray pair itself).
Every cycle of periodic ray pairs has a unique characteristic ray pair with angles in the union ^{[46]}
For nonperiodic rays, we allow a characteristic ray pair to contain the critical value: a ray pair is characteristic if consists of two components so that
 contains all rays Rc(2kϑ) and Rc(2kϑ0) for k ≥ 1
 and contains the critical value
Internal ray Edit
Definition:
 "The internal rays are the preimages of the radial segments under the coordinate with componenet center corresponding to 0." Alfredo Poirier^{[47]}
 The internal rays of U are the images of radial lines under the Riemann maps.^{[48]}
Internal rays are:

component to unit disc:
and point to the origin:
The point is called the center of component .
For any angle the preimage of the radial segment of the unit disc
is called an internal ray of component with welldefined landing point.

intertwined Edit
The internal rays are the curves that connects endpoints of external rays to the origin (the only pole) by winding in the specific way through the Julia set. Unlike the external rays the internal rays allways cross other internal rays, usually at multiple points, hence they are interwined^{[51]}

Rabbit Julia set with spine

Basilica Julia set with spine
In the case of complex_quadratic_polynomial the spine of the filled Julia set is defined as arc between fixed point and ,
with such properties:
 spine lies inside .^{[55]} This makes sense when is connected and full ^{[56]}
 spine is invariant under 180 degree rotation,
 spine is a finite topological tree,
 Critical point always belongs to the spine.^{[57]}
 fixed point is a landing point of external ray of angle zero ,
 is landing point of external ray .
Algorithms for constructing the spine:
 detailed version is described by A. Douady^{[58]}
 Simplified version of algorithm:
 connect and within by an arc,
 when has empty interior then arc is unique,
 otherwise take the shortest way that contains .^{[59]}
Curve :
divides dynamical plane into two components.
Computing external angle for c from centers of hyperbolic components and Misiurewicz points:
The spine of K is the arc from beta to minus beta. Mark 0 each time C is above the spine and 1 each time it is below. You obtain the expansion in base 2 of the external argument theta of z by C. This simply comes from the two following facts: * 0 < theta < 1/2 if acces to z is above the spine, 1/2 < theta < 1 if it is below * function f doubles the external arguments with respect to K, as well as the potential, since Riemman map (Booettcher map) conjugates f to . Note that if c and z are real, the tree reduces to the segment [beta',beta] of the real line, and the sequence of 0 and 1 obtained is just the kneading sequence studied by Milnor and Thurston (except for convention: they use 1 and 1). This sequence appears now as the binary expansion of a number which has a geometrical interpretation. " A. Douady

harmonic Edit
An harmonic or spherical function is a:
 "set of orthogonal functions all of whose curvatures are changing at the same rate."^{[93]}
 "harmonic functions relate two sets of different curves such that the rate of change of their respective curvatures is always equal. " and they are orthogonal
 "One set of curves of the harmonic function expressed the pathways of minimal change in the potential for action, while the other, orthogonal curves expressed the pathways of maximum change in the potential for action."
 "a pair of harmonic conjugate functions, u and v. They satisfy the CauchyRiemann equations. Geometrically, this implies that the contour lines of u and v intersect at right angles"^{[94]}
Geometric examples:
 " A set of concentric circles and radial lines comprises an harmonic function because both the circles and the radial lines intersect orthogonally and both have constant curvature."
 "a set of orthogonal ellipses and hyperbolas."

postcritically finite Edit
a postcritically finite polynomial = all critical points have finite orbit
Resurgent Edit
"resurgent functions display at each of their singular points a behaviour closely related to their behaviour at the origin. Loosely speaking, these functions resurrect, or surge up  in a slightly different guise, as it were  at their singularities"
J. Écalle, 1980^{[97]}^{[98]}^{[99]}
transformation Edit
In mathematics, a transformation is a function f, usually with some geometrical underpinning, that maps a set X to itself, i.e. f : X → X.^{[100]}^{[101]}^{[102]}
Examples include:
 linear transformations of vector spaces
 geometric transformations
 projective transformations
 affine transformations
 rotations
 reflections
 translations^{[103]}^{[104]}
coordinate transformations Edit
There are often many different possible coordinate systems for describing geometrical figures. The relationship between different systems is described by coordinate transformations, which give formulas for the coordinates in one system in terms of the coordinates in another system. For example, in the plane, if Cartesian coordinates (x, y) and polar coordinates (r, θ) have the same origin, and the polar axis is the positive x axis, then the coordinate transformation from polar to Cartesian coordinates is given by x = r cosθ and y = r sinθ.
With every bijection from the space to itself two coordinate transformations can be associated:
 Such that the new coordinates of the image of each point are the same as the old coordinates of the original point (the formulas for the mapping are the inverse of those for the coordinate transformation)
 Such that the old coordinates of the image of each point are the same as the new coordinates of the original point (the formulas for the mapping are the same as those for the coordinate transformation)
For example, in 1D, if the mapping is a translation of 3 to the right, the first moves the origin from 0 to 3, so that the coordinate of each point becomes 3 less, while the second moves the origin from 0 to −3, so that the coordinate of each point becomes 3 more.

 " Hubbard trees are invariant trees connecting the points of the critical orbits of postcritically finite polynomials. Douady and Hubbard showed in the Orsay Notes that they encode all combinatorial properties of the Julia sets. For quadratic polynomials, one can describe the dynamics as a subshift on two symbols, and itinerary of the critical value is called the kneading sequence." Henk Bruin and Dierk Schleicher^{[109]}

Rotation number Edit
The rotation number^{[149]}^{[150]}^{[151]}^{[152]}^{[153]} 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 describes fc action on the cycle: fc turns clockwise around z0 jumping, in each iteration, p points of the cycle ^{[154]}
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

Winding number Edit

 "the winding number of the dynamic ray at angle a around the critical value, which is defined as follows: denoting the point on the dynamic aray at potential t greater or equal to zero by zt and decreasing t from +infinity to 0, the winding number is the total change of arg(zt  c) (divided by 2*Pi so as to count in full turns). Provided that the critical value is not on the dynamic ray or at its landing point, the winding number is welldefined and finite and depends continuously on the parameter. " DIERK SCHLEICHER ^{[157]}
 "the winding number of the dynamic ray at angle ϑ around the critical value, which is defined as follows: denoting the point on the dynamic ϑray at potential t ≥ 0 by zt and decreasing t from +∞ to 0, the winding number is the total change of arg(zt − c) (divided by 2π so as to count in full turns). Provided that the critical value is not on the dynamic ray or at its landing point, the winding number is welldefined and finite and depends continuously on the parameter. When the parameter c moves in a small circle around c0 and if the winding number is defined all the time, then it must change by an integer corresponding to the multiplicity of c as a root of z(c) − c. However, when the parameter returns back to where it started, the winding number must be restored to what it was before. This requires a discontinuity of the winding number, so there are parameters arbitrarily close to c0 for which the critical value is on the dynamic ray at angle ϑ, and c0 is a limit point of the parameter ray at angle ϑ. Since this parameter ray lands, it lands at c0."

If the set is represented as points on a line (or around the edge of a disc), we can represent the partition with lines connecting the dots. The lines usually have lots of crossings. When the partition diagram has no crossing lines, it is called a noncrossing partition. ... They have a lot of beautiful algebraic structure, and are related to lots of old enumeration problems.

 In the study of dynamical systems, a hyperbolic equilibrium point or hyperbolic fixed point is a fixed point that does not have any center manifolds. Near a hyperbolic point the orbits of a twodimensional, nondissipative system resemble hyperbolas. This fails to hold in general. Strogatz notes that "hyperbolic is an unfortunate name—it sounds like it should mean 'saddle point'—but it has become standard."^{[190]} Several properties hold about a neighborhood of a hyperbolic point, notably^{[191]}

germ Edit
 Catastrophe theory analyzes degenerate critical points of the potential function — points where not just the first derivative, but one or more higher derivatives of the potential function are also zero. These are called the germs of the catastrophe geometries. The degeneracy of these critical points can be unfolded by expanding the potential function as a Taylor series in small perturbations of the parameters.
 In mathematics, the notion of a germ of an object in/on a topological space is an equivalence class of that object and others of the same kind that captures their shared local properties. In particular, the objects in question are mostly functions (or maps) and subsets. In specific implementations of this idea, the functions or subsets in question will have some property, such as being analytic or smooth, but in general this is not needed (the functions in question need not even be continuous); it is however necessary that the space on/in which the object is defined is a topological space, in order that the word local has some meaning.The name is derived from cereal germ in a continuation of the sheaf metaphor, as a germ is (locally) the "heart" of a function, as it is for a grain.
infinity Edit
The point at infinity ^{[200]}" 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^{[201]}

singular Edit
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.

A point is called wandering if its forward orbit under the iteration of f is infinite.^{[213]}

 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.

Conjugation Edit
Topological conjugacy Edit
two functions are said to be topologically conjugate if there exists a homeomorphism that will conjugate the one into the other. Topological conjugacy also known as topological equivalence^{[222]} is important in the study of iterated functions and more generally dynamical systems, since, if the dynamics of one iterative function can be determined, then that for a topologically conjugate function follows trivially.
To illustrate this directly: suppose that and are iterated functions, and there exists a homeomorphism such that
so that and are topologically conjugate. Then one must have
and so the iterated systems are topologically conjugate as well. Here, denotes function composition.

 " We can see that looks somewhat like from the "outside", but on the "inside" there are curlicues; pairs of them are vaguely reminiscent of "butterflies". As t→0, these butterflies persist and remain uniformly large. We think of t as representing time, which decreases to 0. The fact that they suddenly disappear for t=0 is the phenomenon called "implosion". Or, if we think of time starting at t=0, then the instantaneous appearance of large "butterflies" for t>0 may be thought of as "explosion". "

The latter include Misiurewicz points (rational external angles, one for filament termini and two or more for interior points such as multiarmed spiral centers) and other points (with irrational external angles). My intuition says if you zoom to a succession of smaller minis along a filament, if this is done in a pattern for infinitely long you tend to a Misiurewicz point, and if it's done randomly for infinitely long you tend to an irrational point. But I have no proof of this. Other noninterior points on filaments mostly belong to individual minibrots: cardioid cusps (two rational external angles, odd denominator) and minibrotfilament branch tips (Misiurewicz points, two rational external angles, even denominator). There is one last point: the exact base of the filament where it attaches to something (minibrot or main set). This point has irrational external angles. The Feigenbaum point at the base of the spike is one of these." pauldelbrot^{[291]}

Limb Edit
 The part of the Mandelbrot set contained in the wake together with the root is called the limb of the Mandelbrot set originated at H (hyperbolic component of the Mandelbrot set)^{[301]}
p/qlimb is a part of Mandelbrot set contained inside p/qwake
For every rational number , where p and q are relatively prime, a hyperbolic component of period q bifurcates from the main cardioid. The part of the Mandelbrot set connected to the main cardioid at this bifurcation point is called the p/qlimb. Computer experiments suggest that the diameter of the limb tends to zero like . The best current estimate known is the Yoccozinequality, which states that the size tends to zero like .
A periodq limb will have q − 1 "antennae" at the top of its limb. We can thus determine the period of a given bulb by counting these antennas.
In an attempt to demonstrate that the thickness of the p/qlimb is zero, David Boll carried out a computer experiment in 1991, where he computed the number of iterations required for the series to converge for z = ( being the location thereof). As the series doesn't converge for the exact value of z = , the number of iterations required increases with a small ε. It turns out that multiplying the value of ε with the number of iterations required yields an approximation of π that becomes better for smaller ε. For example, for ε = 0.0000001 the number of iterations is 31415928 and the product is 3.1415928.^{[302]}

 The limbs attached to the main cardioid are called primary.

Trap is another name of the target set
Test Edit
Bailout test or escaping test Edit
It is used to check if point z on dynamical plane is escaping to infinity or not.^{[328]} It allows to find 2 sets:
 escaping points (it should be also the whole basing of attraction to infinity)^{[329]}
 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).^{[330]}
The output of test can be:
 boolean (yes/no)
 integer: integer number (value of the last iteration)
Types of bailout test:
 in Fractalzoom
 other description
 kf  pnorm with weights
Criterion Edit
criterion = an algorithm which will always give an answer
Attraction test Edit
Theorem Edit
 The DouadyHubbard landing theorem for periodic external rays of polynomial dynamics: "for a complex polynomial f with bounded postcritical set, every periodic external ray lands at a repelling or parabolic periodic point, and conversely every repelling or parabolic point is the landing point of at least one periodic external ray." ^{[331]}
