Robert P. Munafo, 2000 Jan 24.

math. Given a set S, another set R is a subset of S if every element in R is a member of S.

With respect to the Mandelbrot set specifically, a subset is a set of points in the Mandelbrot set, usually comprising a distinct part, piece or feature, such as a mu-atom, a filament, etc.
