Camacho, C. (ed.) et al., Complex analytic methods in dynamical systems. Proceedings of the congress held at Instituto de Matemática Pura e Aplicada, IMPA, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, January 1992. Paris: Société Mathématique de France, Astérisque. 222, 389-405 (1994).
For \(P_ c = z^ 2 + c\) \((z,c \in \mathbb{C})\) the Julia set \(J_ c\) of \(P_ c\) and the Mandelbrot set \(M\) are defined as \(J_ c = \) the closure of repelling periodic points of \(P_ c\) and \(M = (c \in \mathbb{C}\mid J_ c\) is connected). The author already proved – concerning Hausdorff dimension – that \(H\text{-dim } \partial M = 2\). This is extended that for a generic \(c \in \partial M\), \(H\text{-dim } J_ c = 2\).
