Why Yet Another BrooksMatelski Process Program? Many programs
are already available to compute and plot the MSet (the socalled
"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 32bit 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.
