I am currently studying the Mandelbrot set, and have a question about one of the statements on http://mathworld.wolfram.com/QuadraticMap.html" [Broken].(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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