Ever since it was first described and visualized in the 70s and 80s, the Mandelbrot set has been an obsession of mathematicians and fractal enthusiasts alike. The set is generated by repeated use of a very simple mathematical equation, yet images of it are intricately beautiful in a way that one would not imagine.
Deep Journey is designed to be the smoothest, most beautiful interactive experience of the Mandelbrot set available on the iPhone. Allowing quality images at a maximum zoom factor of 10,000,000,000,000 (10 trillion), Deep Journey’s zoom capabilities are not surpassed by any mobile app we know of. To render images as rapidly as possible, the app uses the device's graphics processor.
To generate enthusiasm in mathematics, Deep Journey will include lessons on the math used to generate its images, namely complex numbers and complex analysis. We hope it will be useful to students and inciteful to the general public.
