Why Yet Another Brooks-Matelski Process Program? Many programs are already available to compute and plot the MSet (the so-called "Mandelbrot Set") and its associated JSets. Their aim, however, often appears to be to produce these figures as a kind of art or entertainment and their results are often mathematically inaccurate and tend to obscure, rather than to reveal and to clarify, the underlying mathematics. The aim of YABMP is to produce the most mathematically accurate figures of the MSet and of its associated JSets.

Two interesting features of the program are (1) one can draw a graphics cursor (crosshairs) to read the true coordinates of a point in a figure and move it about; the period of the point can be calculated and displayed and (2) external rays over the figure can be drawn. Figures can be saved to disk and can be printed on an HP LaserJet.

YABMP is a 32-bit Protected Mode program that requires an i486 CPU (or an i386 CPU with i387 FPU). It runs under DOS ( version 3.3 or greater ) with a DOS Extender, which is provided.
