Many people know Julia Sets as beautiful and intricate pictures without understanding how those images are generated. Mathematically, Julia Sets are sets of complex numbers, that are visualized by plotting in the complex plane. These sets come from iterated, complex functions. We'll define this thoroughly below.

Complex numbers, which will be denoted as z, are generally written in the form $z = x+iy$ where x and y are real numbers and $i=\sqrt{-1}$. The magnitude of a complex number
