Can someone explain the Mandelbrot set to me? I know the equation is zn+1 = zn2 + c(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

But what does this mean? Whats its basically saying here? All I know about it really is the existence of fractals, but why are fractals so mathematically important?
