#### Is there a name for this fractal?

« on: April 14, 2019, 08:30:47 AM »
I've been mucking about with some old code (Amiga) and managed to get one of the plotter functions working in Fragmentarium...

iterate...
Code: [Select]
r=z.x;i=z.y;{    a = (r * r - i * i) + r;    b = (r * i + r * i) + i;    m = (a * r - b * i);    n = (r * b + i * a);    r -= m;    i -= n;    if( (r*r+i*i) > EscapeRadius ) break;}..just wondering if anyone has seen this before or knows if it has a name
Resistance is fertile... you will be illuminated!

Image looks like a cubic polynomial Julia set. A quick scan of the code and it does seem to be computing something cubic. Oddly I don't see a Julia seed anywhere, as if it's hard-coded to produce just this one.

After some sheets of calculations it looks like zn+1=-zn3+zn2+zn + 0 (at least my software produces the following image that looks identical to me, although originally it was mirrored left to right).

Thaks for the input guys

@pauldelbrort there is more code involved but I simplified it to show the base shape when all user inputs are at 0

@marcm200 looks like the exact same image to me

is "cubic julia" an accurate name for this formula ? zn+1=-zn3+zn2+zn1+0 looks like a declining series

looking to name this fragment indicatively

...the julia variant at 0, using C.xy in place of +r and +i in the first 2 lines looks like this...

...at first I thought "of course someone here has explored this before" but the closest thing I found is http://www.fractalforums.com/new-theories-and-research/metabrot/msg77460/#msg77460 post about the "Metabrot" but the above formula, zn+1=-zn3+zn2+zn1+0 , is different.

CubicMeta variant ?

Maybe "Burt's bisector" is a suitable name for the formula?

If one sees the coefficients of the formula as a 4D point where the axis are the singleton polynomials zk (k=0..3) then, just as the point (1,1) is on the angle bisector in the upper right quadrant of the complex plane, (-1,1,1,1) is on the bisector of some 4D "quadrant". And taking the initial letters and naming the 3rd dimension quadrants obviously bottom/top and the 4th before/after leads (after shuffling) to BURT.

"AveragePlusandthenSum.jpg" - very nice image! Would've made a great picture for the image of the month contest - gold from me!

tnx  "Burt's bisector" sounds good, better than anything I thought of    yeah I got nothin' but "Cubic Meta variant"

will keep messing around with it and maybe come up with something for the contest

@3Dickulus Beautiful results!
If your entry is anything like "AveragePlusandthenSum.jpg", I agree with marcm200 and it's gold from me too!

It's one of the most beautiful fractals I have seen in a while...
