Recurrence Relation    

Robert P. Munafo, 2002 May 29.

Another name for the formula or mapping function used for each step in an iteration calculation. For the Mandelbrot set the recurrence relation is the function:

f(Z) = Z2 + C

Many other fractals can be defined by iteration of a recurrence formula, including Julia sets and multibrot sets..

See iterates, Brown method.
