Lambda, by Julia

Video Find of the Day

I missed this one the day before yesterday. These are Lambda Julia sets, which is math code for Julia sets associated to complex quadratric mappings parametrized in the fashion of "complex number goes to LAMBDA times itself times one minus itself." It's one of my pet peeves that to read math you have to learn all this jargon. Oh well. Check out the pretty movie. This is MATH!

Lambda Julia [Where the lambda is going for a leisurely walk around a circle in the complex plane, and you're seeing the results.]
