it was a great time but no longer maintainable by c.Kleinhuis contact him for any data retrieval,
thanks and see you perhaps in 10 years again

this forum will stay online for reference

After Paul (bugman) posted examples of 3D Pickover Stalks and I managed to get a fairly decent algorithm for 3D orbit traps I decided to try Pickover Stalks myself, so here's an example.
This is a Julia Set using particularly esoteric 3D maths for z^2+c where the unit vector multiplication table is:

   *  |  r   i   j
   ----------------
   r  |  r   j  -i
   i  |  j  -i   r
   j  | -i   r  -j

Just in case anyone's interested:

Here's a rotation of the z^2+c Mandy for this system:

Also this multiplication table was inspired by the idea of any two of three perpendicular forces coming together producing a perpendicular result and is based on the obvious unit vector multiplication table for such a system, i.e.

   * |   r      i       j
   --------------------
   r  | +/-r  +/-j  +/-i
   i  | +/-j  +/-i  +/-r
   j  | +/-i  +/-r  +/-j

Obviously this gives 512 possibilities depending on the signs used - I tried a few and settled on one based on the fact that it was the most visually interesting Mandy smiley
