This chapter deals with the question of local connectivity of the Julia set of polynomials and rational maps. It discusses when the Julia set of a rational map is considered connected but not locally connected. The question of the local connectivity of the Julia set has been studied extensively for quadratic polynomials, but there is still no complete characterization of when a quadratic polynomial has a connected and locally connected Julia set. This chapter thus proposes some conjectures and develops a model of non-locally connected Julia sets in the case of infinitely renormalizable quadratic polynomials. This model presents the structure of what the post-critical set in that setting should be.

Keywords:   Julia sets, local connectivity, rational maps, quadratic polynomials, non-locally connected Julia sets, infinitely renormalizable quadratic polynomials
