newtonFractalNewton’s Method and Fractals This image illustrates how Newton’s root finding method results in fractal boundaries to the basins of attraction when applied to a polynomial in one complex variable. In this case, the polynomial is of order six, with three roots on the the unit circle and an additional three on the circle of radius 2. Read more.
