First article about the Mandelbrot Set available online

Back in 1985 A.K.Dewdney published an article about the Mandelbrot Set in his Computer Recreations column in Scientific American that helped kick off the Mandelbrot mayhem.

As a tribute to Mandelbrot after his death the article is now available as a PDF on their website. Click the following image to access the page.

Scientific American Cover.

The ads for the super high power computers of the time are almost as enjoyable as the main article to read.
