# 7b: What is the connection between the Mandelbrot set and Julia sets?

Each point c in the Mandelbrot set specifies the geometric structure of

the corresponding Julia set. If c is in the Mandelbrot set, the Julia set

will be connected. If c is not in the Mandelbrot set, the Julia set will be a

Cantor dust.
