Julia Set

Turns out that there are 4D analogues to the 2D Julia sets which use quaternions ($i^2 = j^2 = k^2 = ijk = -1$) instead of regular complex numbers. Seeing as they're 4D they can only be visualised as 3D slices of the whole set, which end up looking quite a bit different than the regular Julia sets depending on the chosen slice.

Here's a link to a video which passes through multiple 3D slices of a quaternion Julia set:
And bellow is an image of such a slice.

Leonora Boci:
Julia set with the parameter ยต taken from the center of the circle on top of the cardioid.

Julia Sets:
zn+1 = c sin(zn)   zn+1 = c exp(zn)
zn+1 = c i cos(zn)   zn+1 = c zn (1 - zn)

A property of the the Julia Set is that if the domain of c is real numbers the the Julia Set it mirrored about the Real axis. If  c is a complex number with an imaginary component then then the symmetry is rotational at 180 degrees.
