Shrubs in the Mandelbrot set ordering

By Miguel Romera, Gerardo Pastor, Gonzalo Álvarez Marañón and Fausto Montoya Vitini


22 pages, 9 figures.We introduce shrubs in this paper in order to present a first approach to studying the structure of the Mandelbrot set. Primary, secondary... and N-ary shrubs are analyzed. We have experimentally obtained formulae to calculate the periods of the hyperbolic component representatives of the structural branches, and the preperiods and periods of both the nodes -where structural branches emanate- and the tips -where the shrub enters in crisis. A generalization allows us to give in each case one formula to calculate representative periods and preperiods and periods of nodes and tips.This work was supported by Ministerio de Ciencia y Tecnología of Spain, research grant TIC2001-0586.Peer reviewe
