I'm not sure if this is the correct section to be posting in. I'm writing a summary of the mandelbrot set and I'm not sure I understand how the points are calculated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've got the equation:

z = z[tex]^{2}[/tex] + c

This means each value is squared, and then a constant value c is added, to get a new value of z, which then goes through the same process. What does this infinite series represent? Is c an actual defined constant, like pi or G, or is it just a value that can be chosen?
