Colloquial abbreviation of island mu-molecule, or of island mu-unit.

In Mu-Ency, island is more often used to refer to a mu-unit, because that is the more useful distinction when looking at the mathematical properties. However, when Benoit Mandelbrot used the term in his book The Fractal Geometry of Nature, he used it to refer to a mu-molecule.
