This is nothing new. But I think it hadn't recieved deserved attention.

Pure split complex mandelbrot (i*i=1 ; i<>1) is just solid square. With few modifications it becomes zoomable complex geometric figure just like mandelbrot set but mostly based on right angles and parabolas.

Zuzubrot or Quadratic General formula. It need some better name than that.

x=abs( x*x+y*y +Cx )

y=abs( 2*x*y +Cy )

With starting seed of (0.5,0) and bailout >= 50.

This formula is pretty simple for Kalles Fractaler but it probably don't needs it's advanced capabilities.
