This is yet another variation of the Mandelbrot Set, the latest of the Mandelbrot series, you could say.

This time, what varies is the power to which the complex number z is raised to in each iteration.

The standard Mandelbrot Set is iterated as follows: z(n+1) = z(n)^2 + c

However, in this simulation, we define the algorithm as follows:

z(n+1) = z(n)^k + c, where k is a real number.

The value of k can be adjusted with either the slider, which allows the values to be set between 1 and 10, or with the field provided, which allows for any real value of k to be entered. This set is also called the Multibrot Set, as a portmanteau of "Multiple" and "Mandelbrot".

Disclaimer: Due to the colouring algorithm used, selecting negative powers will end up merely returning a monotone page of colour. We are currently working on implementing a better colouring algorithm for all our Mandelbrot Set simulations.
The default value of k is set to k = 10
