Rainbow colors
We can define a continuous number x of iterations needed to reach the critical radius R. Note that if the nth iteration of f(z) equals R then x=n, and if the (n1)th iteration equals R then x=n1. For values inbetween … Continue reading

Hints for experiments
You can modify the code of the last post “selfsimilar fractals … – the code” to produce new images. A large value for the imaginary part of the constant c often destroys the mirror symmetry and gives a more dynamic … Continue reading

A fractal kaleidoscope
– whatever that means. I got the idea from the exterior snowflake and the Koch snowflake. They both are fractal curves and are discussed in Wikipedia and Wolfram math world. But I slightly modified the iteration scheme. I start with … Continue reading

Another surprise from complex function iteration
Playing around with my program I found a remarkable result. I used the function f(z)=z*z*z*z+z*z+0.000002 in the iteration. Because of the leading 4th power this multiplies the complex phase by four for large z. Thus the compensation is minus three … Continue reading
Fractal surprise from complex function iteration: The movie
The movie shows the images as discussed int the earlier post “Fractal surprise from complex function iteration” for a decreasing value of the constant c. The program of the last post creates the movie frames. The movie begins with c=0.4 … Continue reading
