What exactly is the importance of the Mandelbrot set in general?
From what I've read, it seems more of a mathematical play thing than anything else.. there must be more to it than the disturbing pictures, no?
Also, is there an easily understandable proof anywhere showing that the boundary of a Mandelbrot set is a fractal?
I know Shishikura proved it in the 90s, but I haven't been able to find his proof, nor do I believe I would have the ability to decipher it without an intermediary source breaking it down a bit. Maybe even just an explanation of his process?
Thanks for any assistance!
