Description from the packaging.
Fractal Frenzy Visions Of Chaos contains thousands of original fractal images in a truly spectacular collection by Lee H. Skinner.
One day I received in the mail my copy of Scientific American with what at first glance at the cover appeared to be some aspect of solar corona. Instead, it was a fractal image of part of the Mandelbrot set. When I then read the article and saw that this beautiful picture (and others in the issue) was calculated by iterating with complex arithmetic on an absurdly simple formula (Z squared + c), I felt stunned, dumbfounded, flabbergasted, that such richly decorative beauty of such intricate complexity could itself develop out of such a simple formula and algorithm.

Index files describe each image and the formula used to compute the images. The images on this CD-ROM are categorized by fractal type. Walnut Creek includes a record of ancestors of many images. Ancestors are another image from which the current image was generated through either a transform or a zoom. In most directories, you can use this feature to trace yourself all the way out; sometimes zooming outward up to 14 times. The fracint program used to generate the images is also included.
