Cubic Mandelbrot ABS Variations Incomplete by stardust4ever
Cubic Mandelbrot ABS Variations Incomplete
Similar to the Quadratic Mandelbrot equations, variations cand be produced by optionally adding abs() commands to various portions of the equation, as well as optionally negating the real or imaginary sides. These fractals belong to a superset with 64 possible combinations, many of which are duplicates and many of which are "junk". I have not cataloged all 64 combinations, so many fractals are as of yet undiscovered. Here are the more interesting 3rd order fractal variants I have cataloged so far.

I'm taking credit for discovering the Quasi Burning Ship and Quasi Perpendicular. I called them "Quasi" because of their physical resemblance to the 2nd order fractals by the same name. If anyone knows of prior art concerning these two fractals, please let me know and I'll give credit for codiscovery. The Quasi Burning Ship is a hybrid of the Cubic Burning ship and the Cubic Buffalo. Chillheimer was nice enough to add my Cubic Quasi Burning Ship formula to the Kalles Fraktaler Deep Zoom software:…

The Cubic Burning Ship and Cubic Buffalo are also available in Kalles Fraktaler, as well as Fractal Extreme plugins by Panzerboy.…

Feel free to use any of the above formulas in your software or art.

Mandelbrot ABS Variations Complete Set of Formulas
Complete Set of 12 Fractals, created by adding abs() commands to the standard form Mandelbrot fractal, and flipping the signage the imaginary side. The Asymmetric fractals such as Burning Ship and Buffalo have chiral pairs, created by reversing the signage on the imaginary side. Because these fractals create mirror images of each other, I have omitted them. The total including these dulpicates would make a set of 16. Negating the real side only generates duplicates of existing fractals with the needle pointing east. Those variants are also omitted.

Most of these formulas are available in plugins for Fractal Extreme, created by Panzerboy in 2012. I supplied all the formulas in the fxmandelbarperp plugin.……

Feel free to incorporate any of the above fractal formulas in your own software.

Well, I just noticed when I looked at my profile, that I had reached that milestone of 5000 page views. Not much for five years of DA membership, but it's still great to know people are at least occasionally viewing my work. Well, here's some fractal boobies to celebrate:
