# Southwest

Robert P. Munafo, 2010 Sep 20.

A colloquial direction and directional modifier referring to a direction between south and west. As with both of those terms, it can be used either in an absolute sense (relative to the real and imaginary axes) or as a relative direction (relative to a mu-molecule).

The southwest external angle is 5/8, and the filament subset operator for the filament off the southwest point of a mu-molecule is FS[(1/2(2/3B1)B1)t] (which can be abbreviated FS[2(2/3)]).

The colloquial term "southwest radical" refers to R2.3/5, because it touches R2a on its southwest side. Note that this is not the same place in the Mandelbrot set as the southwest external angle, which is at R2.1/2.2/3.
