I am struggling to ask my question here well.

I have in mind a precise question with an exact answer - The difficultly is not knowing the field (fractals) as an expert I cannot use mathematical symbology so I tried to pin it down with words.

I am not sure if this comes across as lazy (I should hope not as I have put quite a lot of time and effort into trying to answer this myself without success) or what, but I would appreciate any suggestions that will help to improve this question in order.

    $\begingroup$ Symbology sounds like a made-up subject like from the Harry Potter series. $\endgroup$ – 97832123 Sep 10 '10 at 7:35

    $\begingroup$ The question it pertains to have been deleted by the OP. OP is no longer with us on Math.SE. Closing the question so it would pop back-up to front page. $\endgroup$ – Willie Wong Jun 26 '11 at 12:06
