Summary:
John H. Hubbard presents the basics of fractals. He explains iteration and how it is used to create pictures of Julia and Mandelbrot sets, as well as the electric fields which would surround electrically charged objects shaped like them. He concludes with remarks about these sets and the field of genetics and their relations.

Abstract:

John H. Hubbard presents the basics of fractals. He explains iteration and how it is used to create pictures of Julia and Mandelbrot sets, as well as the electric fields which would surround electrically charged objects shaped like them. He concludes with remarks about these sets and the field of genetics and their relations.
