The cover art was inspired by the article in this issue by Barnes and Schaubroeck. It shows the filled Julia set of the function \(f_c(z) = z^2 + c\). Here the value of \(c = (1,92^\circ)\), expressed using polar coordinates, is based on the number, 1, and volume, 92, of this issue.
Background and Inspiration
This work was originally done for use as cover art for the February 2019 issue of Mathematics Magazine. This is the twenty-first of 25 original artworks I created for the journal Mathematics Magazine during 2015–2019.
