Mandelbrot Explorer

GPU Accelerated Mandelbrot Explorer

Real-time exploration of the Mandelbrot Set

GitHub link

The application is CUDA accelerated, so it allows for fast and smooth exploration of the Mandelbrot Set. The code is also implemented using an arbitrary precision library so the depth of the zoom extends beyond what is possible with single precision floating point numbers while using the same FP32 cores. This means deeper zooms are possible at reasonable computation speed for non-compute GPUs that have drastically less FP64 cores than their compute counterparts. The precision at the moment is limited to a zoom of ~1E32. I noticed that anything after this the library produced inconsistent results, so I capped the precision to quad-precision.
