Abstract

This paper discusses how a Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME) application may be developed to visualise a wide variety of differing fractal types on a mobile phone. A limited number of J2ME applications are available that are capable of generating the Mandelbrot Set. At present there are no J2ME applications capable of generating a multitude of fractal image types.
