Quadratic Recurrence and the Mandelbrot Set

  1. Nov 30, 2008 #1
    I am currently studying the Mandelbrot set, and have a question about one of the statements on http://mathworld.wolfram.com/QuadraticMap.html" [Broken].

    It says the recurrence for the Mandelbrot set "is not in general solvable in closed form." What does this mean?
