Part of video series Complex Numbers and Fibration
Taught by IsAllAboutMath
More discussion about complex numbers and the complex plane, including complex transformations and fractal geometry.
  • What are complex numbers?
  • How can you transform images in the complex plane?
  • What does a transformation look like when you multiply by 1 + i?
  • How do you transform an image using the transformation z -> z^2, z -> -1/z, z -> z + k/z, or z -> e^z?
  • What happens when you perform the transformation z -> z^2 repeatedly for points inside the unit circle?
  • What is the Julia set?
  • How are fractals created using complex numbers?
  • What is the rabbit in complex fractals?
  • What is the Mandelbrot set and how does it relate to the Julia set?
This lesson picks up from where the previous video left off. Transformations of figures are discussed by multiplying coordinates of images by complex numbers. The resulting geometry is very interesting. Fractals in complex geometry are also shown and explained in great detail, including Julia and Mandelbrot sets.
