Its a form of complex numbers. A set of numbers and when rendered via application of the equation, creates very nice fractals.

Its kinda cool if you look at some of the renderings using the sets, especially the ones that zoom in and continue to zoom in forever and ever.

In essence, its like a quadratic equation that continues to occur (infinite) as values in increase.
