The London Mathematical Society and the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Glasgow is proud to present a popular lecture for Maths Week Scotland: A tour of the Mandelbrot set, by Dr. Holly Krieger (University of Cambridge).

The beautiful and complicated Mandelbrot set has captivated mathematicians since the first computer images of the set were drawn in the 1980s. In this talk we'll take a walk around the infinite intricacies of the Mandelbrot set, exploring the spirals, finding Fibonacci, and answering the question every maths student wonders when they first meet the Mandelbrot set: why do we care about this pretty picture?
