# Ball

Robert P. Munafo, 2023 Apr 17.

A colloquial name for mu-atom. This can cause confusion because in formal mathematics a ball is the set of points inside a sphere and the term for a set of points inside a circle is disk; also in the Mandelbrot set almost al the "circular" mu-atoms are not exactly circular.
