#### Rotabulbs

« on: October 03, 2018, 12:06:33 PM »
"Rotabulbs" is the name I've come up with for the "bulb" style fractals produced when y,z in (x,y,z) is rotated (say as a complex) around the x-axis, prior to treating as a quaternion with 4th dimension zero in a following function, though more generically we don't necessarily have to stick to 3D or to using quaternionic math in the second part
Here are two images of a Minibrot from such a formula one is just a detailed crop from the large original of the other.
In this case the y,z angle is doubled and in the quaternionic part the angle is tripled but the magnitude only doubled,

The meaning and purpose of life is to give life purpose and meaning.

Wondered what would happen if (y,z) in (x,y,z) was just rotated by the original angle of (y,z) for the "pixel" (i.e.point in 3D/4D) rather then the changing value, Not really bulbs, but interesting.......these are from 8*original angle for the (y,z) and then a power 8 quaternion.

Added the yz rotation scaling as a single function that can be called at the start of each iteration of any 3D/4D formula.

Examples attached are the standard W/N degree 4 with yz angle also scaled by 4 with the magnitude of yz constant and the W/N degree 6 with the yz angle scaled by 6 and the magnitude of yz constant.
