Title:  Similarities between Julia sets and the Mandelbrot set

Abstract:   If you take a Julia set corresponding to a rational map and zoom in at different points, it displays a lot of fractal-like self-similarity. The same is true for the Mandelbrot set. Furthermore, at certain points, if you zoom in on both the Mandelbrot set and the corresponding Julia set at that point and compare the two to each other, they look remarkably similar. In this talk, we will explore this phenomenon and describe the similarity between these sets more precisely.
