On a topological closeness of perturbed Mandelbrot sets
In the present work we propose a numerical and visual tool for the study of the deformation of the Mandelbrot sets of perturbed Mandelbrot maps by noise in comparison with the original Mandelbrot set. Further, by employing these numerical tools, we support the invariance of the Mandelbrot set of a noise-perturbed Mandelbrot map under different noise realizations. Finally, we provide evidence for the non-fractal structure of the Mandelbrot set of a noise-perturbed Mandelbrot map. (C) 2009 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
