**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
