Dwell Limit  

Robert P. Munafo, 2012 Apr 16.



The "Dwell Limit" is the setting in a Mandelbrot program that controls the maximum number of iterations to use when generating an image.

It is also known by the names "Maximum Dwell", "Maximum Iterations", "Iteration Limit", and N-Max (or N_max or NMAX).
