Found the right simplification!!! It is; acos(y/sqrt(r)) = atan2(sqrt(x*x+z*z),y) // used in Inigo Q. bulb asin(z/sqrt(r)) = 1.5707  atan2(sqrt(x*x+y*y),z) // used in standard Mandelbulb Alternative; asin(z/sqrt(r)) = atan2(z,sqrt(x*x+y*y))
I can do the formula in both flavours, baby. Also found a workaround for arctan() and atan2(). atan(m/n) = atan2(m,n) if n>0. However; atan(m/n) = atan2(m,abs(n))*sign(n) always

Also found a workaround for arctan() and atan2(). atan(m/n) = atan2(m,n) if n>0. However; atan(m/n) = atan2(m,abs(n))*sign(n) alwaysNice.. here is another experiment: In the Mandelbox, change the C (cx,cy,cz) for: rc=sqrt(cx*cx+cy*cy+cz*cz);
iteration.. const float theta1 = atan2(sqrt(cx*cx + cz*cz) , cy)+0.78539816339744830961566084581988; const float phi1 = atan2(cz,cx)+0.78539816339744830961566084581988; const float sintheta1=rc * sin(theta1); cx = sintheta1 * cos(phi1); cz = sintheta1 * sin(phi1); cy = rc * cos(theta1);
Unlike the mandelbulb version, this one add an small angle to the C value every iteration, in this case pi/4.. There's a big difference between rotating C after or before the Mandelbox transformation. One of them gives to the mandelbox a rotated Rubik Cube look..

Keeping in mind that atan, acos, asin are equivalent of atan2 of modified arguments, and considering more untried variations, I am thinking of a very general customizable Mandelbulb formula. The formula has this form; (user params are bold) //  universal Mandelbulb formula  // optional; do here abs(x), abs(y), abs(z) to get Benesilike formulas ...
// check for args of th, and load them // check if atan tweak is ON and modify args accordingly th := atanmul * power * atan2(args) // Formula with power of angle different than the power of r is not good... // put tweaks of th here
// check for args of ph, and load them // check if atan tweak is ON and modify args accordingly ph := atanmul * zangp * atan2(args) // put tweaks of ph here sq_r := sqrt(x*x+y*y+z*z) r:= sq_r ^ power x = r*cos(th)*cos(ph) + Cx y = r*sin(th)*cos(ph) + Cy z = r*sin(ph)*zmul + CzThe tweak consists of different choices for the atan2 args. Let us define the functions h(a,b) = hypot(a,b) = sqrt(a*a+b*b) u(a,b) = max(abs(a),abs(b)) d(a,b) = min(abs(a),abs(b))Tweaks; a) atan tweak; The sign of the "signed" (or the first, for variants of type 1) argument is not considered, then atanmul = sgn(argument)b) xenodream tweak; (used in the Xenodream variant, after the calculation of atan2() do this correction) if (angle > 0.5 * M_PI) { angle = M_PI  angle;} else if (angle < 0.5 * M_PI) { ph = M_PI  angle;} Args; 1) x,y // x,z // y,x // y,z // z,x // z,y (normal variables). 2) x, h(y,z) // y, h(x,z) // z, h(x,y) // and the previous args in reversed order. (simulation of arcsin(), arccos() functions). 3) x, u(y,z) // y, u(x,z) // z, u(x,y) // and the previous args in reversed order. (the "cubic distance" instead of the euclidean one). 4) x, d(y,z) // y, d(x,z) // z, d(x,y) // and the previous args in reversed order. (alternate "cubic distance"). This should cover every possible Mandelbulb variation EXCEPT for rotations OR abs(x) thingmajigs. (total of 6x4x4 variants for EACH angle considered, WITHOUT considering 4 dimensional bulbs.)

I have done the formula but it needs more refinement, see tomorrow From that formula it's straightforward the Aexion C mangling

Made some testings, but the possibilities are big, so this needs further exploration. I guess the first image shows more or less the same as your first result with rotated C, only that you stopped at max iterations and my image was at a certain distance with more iterations at the spikes. Not really sure but this is one i had those spikes, it was without the negation of the atan2's. The second (attached) image was an experiment of doing the C rotation based on the difference of the vectors Z and C. Maybe i did the rotation on C also with a different coordinate system orientation. A kind of interaction between those vectors seems a not that bad idea to me...?

Beautiful renders Jesse, and you're right, this needs more exploration! And yes, in my first image, I didn't negated the atan2.. It was in the second image on where I negated it (as an experiment suggested by eiffie) Some sections of the first image reminds me the decoration of the Mayan Stela's, while the second looks like the Brain Coral: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brain_coralps. Do not mention that the first set looks like the Mayan Calendar in many places, because finding such calendar in a fractal, near 2012 will cause a large amount of end of the world news..

Do not mention that the first set looks like the Mayan Calendar in many places, because finding such calendar in a fractal, near 2012 will cause a large amount of end of the world news.. No prob, the Mayan Calendar mythos can be easily falsificated by some bits of information. Merry christmas, attached a test with the amount of C rotation mutliplied by euclidian distance of the vecs...

Merry Christmas for you too Jesse!! Great Render!! The shapes and the lights are incredible! I like it. One interesting feature hat I have noted, is the fact that if you run C on conditionals, the fractal doesn't show discontinuity, but interesting structures appears.. For example: const float theta1 = atan2(sqrt(cx*cx + cz*cz) , cy)*8; const float phi1 =(x>0)?atan2(cz,cx)*8:atan2(cz,cx)*8;
Try it..

Ramiro this concept is similar to XenoDream's angular fold; double rp = pow(r, p); double th = atan2(z.y, z.x); double ph = acos(z.z / r); if (ph > 0.5 * M_PI) { ph = M_PI  ph; } else if (ph < 0.5 * M_PI) { ph = M_PI  ph; } z.x = rp * cos(th * p) * sin(ph * p); z.y = rp * sin(th * p) * sin(ph * p); z.z = rp * cos(ph * p); z = z + constant; r = z.Length();

Here's the function: bool MBulbCr(float x, float y, float z,int miter){ int Counter; float ctx=x; float cty=y; float ctz=z; const float rc = sqrt(ctx*ctx + cty*cty + ctz*ctz); for(Counter=0;Counter<miter;Counter++){ const float r = sqrt(x*x + y*y + z*z); const float theta = atan2(sqrt(x*x + z*z) , y)*8; const float phi = atan2(z,x)*8; const float r2=r*r*r*r; const float r1=r2*r2; const float sintheta=r1 * cos(theta); x = sintheta * cos(phi)+ctx; y = sintheta * sin(phi)+cty; z = r1 * sin(theta)+ctz; const float theta1 = atan2(sqrt(ctx*ctx + ctz*ctz) , cty)*8; const float phi1 =(x>0)?atan2(ctz,ctx)*8:atan2(ctz,ctx)*8; const float sintheta1=rc * cos(theta1); ctx = sintheta1 * cos(phi1); cty = sintheta1 * sin(phi1); ctz = rc * sin(theta1); if (r>4) break; } if(Counter<miter)return true;else return false; }
If you iterate the system with this conditional, it will looks like: The field is open for many other combinations of rules (IFS?).. Good luck!
