I noticed that after David Makin saw this topic and viewed the video, that he must have decided this group would not be able to answer a question he had about what Mr. Mandelbrot said.  For he posted the following to the UF-Programmers' email list:

Quote
He mentions an original as yet unproved conjecture that two different
constructs for the Set are identical - anyone know the details ?
I can't seem to find the conjecture he refers to.

Maybe somebody here really can assist him.
 


Very very interesting interview, especially because I'm French as well smiley

I *think* the 2 definitions are, in my simple words :

- the set of c points that stay bounded when iterating infinitely z²+c
- the set of c points for which the Julia set is connected

correct ?

Nope.
Well, I'm pretty sure, nope.
He rather talked about two different ways to get that set. At least to me it sounded like that...

I'm very curious to know the answer then. I had heard about the "locally connected" conjecture, but not about this one.

Well . . .  besides getting Mr. Mandelbrot to make a comment or two on the new Mandelbulb/box formulas and images, we should also get him to give a bit more explanation on that interview.  Apparently there does not seem to be an answer available.

So this is an update from Benoit himself and is of interest to us here.

Thank you for posting! He's quite a good public speaker. I also liked the short film that came after the speech.
