Mandelbrot Set Viewer is a program that displays images from the Mandelbrot set. This set has become popular outside mathematics for its aesthetic appeal. It is one of the best known examples of mathematical visualizations: the points form a 2D fractal shape. This program allows you to view a grayscale image of any part of this shape, zooming in to any part of it.

To select a part of the set that you want to view, you must draw a square by using your mouse. Once you do this, the program will show you the selected area zoomed in.

This program does not use a fixed image. It calculates how that exact area will look when zoomed in, and then it shows it to you. That´s why there are no limits to the zooming level, you can zoom in as many times as you want. This viewer will always show you a detailed image of the selected part of the set. By clicking the right button of your mouse, you can zoom out of the image, until it shows the full image, which is the one that the program shows when started.
