Julia set - mathematical objects derived by iterations of polynomial equations
real number (a) - all rational and irrational numbers that have a defined value
imaginary number (b) a number in which the value of that number cannot be found (e.g. square root of negative one).
Cartesian plane - a standard plane with two axes, x and y, that is used for graphing
complex plane - a Cartesian plane with a real and imaginary axis as opposed x and y axes.  A (real number) would be on the x axis and b (imaginary) would be on the y axis. 
complex numbers - a number composed of a real number and an imaginary number.  The standard format for an imaginary number is a + bi where a is the real number and bi is the imaginary number.
iteration - the action or process of repeating
