i have entered the rather simple burning ship formula

$z_{n+1}=|z_n|^2+c$

it is the burning buld fractal at 2 exponent ! front and rear view

looks way more interesting than the 2D-version

The 2D burning ship is very interesting, when you start to zoom in on it...

Very neat! I'm not clear what do you mean by abs(z)? For the complex case it should be: xnew+iynew = x²-y² + 2i|xy| - zc

abs z is clear.

it's just the radius with phi=0° and theta=0°

just compare polar coordinate complex abs

what algebra is it?
i've got different results with quaternions:
z[n+1] = (abs(z.a) + abs(z.b)*i + abs(z.c)*j + abs(z.d)*k)^2 + h

If so, then I don't think this is the correct formula for the Burning Ship, but it's still interesting.

ah, wait, yeah, forgot...

abs(real)+abs(imag) for complex...

well...

convert from spherical to cartesian and then

abs(x) abs(y) abs(z)

$abs(x)=|x|$ and it is the same for more dimensions sorry for confusion

i have corrected the above notation

@gaston3d the used algebra is polar coordinate triplex, d.white & p.nylanders version, as defined on:
http://www.fractalforums.com/theory/triplex-algebra/

i will go and try to find more simple base fractals, was experimenting with barnsley. until i understand how to modify the derivations for new functions i will wait for trying newtonian, or diverging fractals
it is very enjoying seeing that thing morph in realtime on my gts250 gpu, i really hope there will be a numbers library with arbitrary precision for gpus soon to work with greater precision

Do you mean |(x, y, z)| = (|x|, |y|, |z|) ?

i think formula z[n+1] = |z[n]|^2 + c is still improper and is equivalent to z[n+1] = z[n]^2 + c

one of definitions of absolute value is: abs(a+bi+...) = sqrt(a^2+b^2+...), then (abs(z))^2 = z^2

i am not into gpu programing, but read somewhere that 64 bit double precision were introduced in shader model 5 (directx11) and is supported by nvidia gt200 chipset

Do you mean |(x, y, z)| = (|x|, |y|, |z|) ?

You might also want to try {|x|, |y|, z}, as that seems to give interesting results as well, and the cross section in the x-y plane still contains the 2D Burning Ship fractal.

yes, that is what i did, i think it is nice to have possible 3d analogons of existing fractals using the triplex algebra, i am right now into trying several formulas, which do not need
additional functions ( sin,cos ... )

btw. having the original 2d complex numbers fractal in one plane is a must ...
