The Bailout condition is given by the following formula:

The default value for this condition is usually 4. Questo valore indica un cerchio con centro avente raggio .

**How does the Bailout condition function?**

The Bailout condition makes the points, iterated *n* times, don't reach infinite. It helps to develop a limited number of iterations. Programs such as GNU Xaos, the iterable point colours vary according to the computable iterations within this condition.

**Effects on fractals during the change of the Bailout condition**

During the variation of this condition, the appearance of fractal will change radically. Let's take, for example, the Mandelbrot fractal, modifying the Bailout condition **Calculation>Bailout** to 1:

Have you noticed? The appearance of the Mandelbrot set is completely altered. Now it's a completely different fractal with new details to be explored. The same thing certainly will be true for other fractals too.
