This is a tiny application to study the Mandelbrot set. The app gives a graphical representation of the set. You have a lot of color schemes to try. It is possible to enlarge an area of the set by marking out the area with your mouse. You can set the size of the canvas and the value of the maximum iteration. In my experience it is the best choice to run the app on Firefox or Chrome.

Sorry, but your browser does not support the HTML5 canvas and webworkers API. Please try the app on an other browser (Internet Explorer 10+, Firefox 3.5+, Opera 10.60+, Chrome 3+, Safari 4+).

Canvas size:

Maximum iteration:

Tip: use your mouse to enlarge an area.

Tip: The more iteration you use, the more detailed picture you get. After modifying the iteration number and/or the canvas size, you have to push the Calculate button to enforce the changes.

Warning: you are about to approach the limit, when the set cannot be represented by the means of standard javascript numbers. In this case the app will use the math.js bignumbers, but this results in much lower speed.
