# Critical Point

Robert P. Munafo, 1997 Nov 20.

The point 0+0i, in discussions of Julia sets, is called the critical point. The orbit of that point is called the critical orbit and tells whether the Julia set is connected or is a Cantor set (also called a Fatou dust).

See also fundamental dichotomy.
