FOTD -- April 23, 1997

Fractal visionaries:

Today's fractal is actually part of the four-dimensional hyper-complex version of the Mandelbrot set.   The formula is not my own; I merely added a couple variable parameters to a formula already in FRACTINT.FRM.   But the resulting image is most unusual and eye-catching, and well worth the hour it takes to run on a 486 100mhz machine.   For those who would like to see the image without tying up their machines, it is posted to ABPF (

The image might add some fuel to the anti-aliasing debate.
