This program uses a vecorised mandelbrot algorithm (a pretty fast algorithm from
% Lucio Andrade-Cetto which worked great for me.) I tried before the
% Fractal Explorer from Laurant Cavin, but that program was not
% running on my computer.

% Known limitations: the code is very repetitive and I appreciate any
% comments that will help to shorten the code to what is really
% required. I am new to MatLab and I tried to put the repetitive
% parts of the code into functions. However I couldn't get the code
% to work.

% The program lets you zoom easily into the Mandelbrot Set by just
% selecting a subset of the currently displayed graph and then press
% the Command Button "Apply Zoom to MandelBrot set" and the new
% calcualtion will be performed.

% I will try to add more functions to the GUI and to improve the
% code.

% Enjoy

Dear Image Analyst,

Thanks for the tip off. I updated the posting and I included a .fig file. Please don’t hesitate to try it again, or have a look at the Mandel121 program which executes faster and allows you more option for manipulating the Mandelbrot set.

Kind regards


Can't run because the fig file was not included.
