What Is This

This image of a fractal was generated by computer science students Chris Grzegorczyk and Kyo Lee using their real time interactive parallel visualization tool (started in Prof. John Gilbert's CS240A course). The picture is a rendering of the trajectories of points under the action of f(z)=z^2+c, for z and c in C. The intensity of each pixel reflects the frequency with which the corresponding region is visited (which is very expensive computationally), rather than the traditional method which reflects only the number of iterations.
