### Cubic Julia Set Fractal

zn+1 = zn3+zc, zc = -0.5-0.05i
This was one of my older favorites.

original version: Java, 6/9/01;
animated version: Mathematica 4.2, 2/18/05

```(* runtime: 10 seconds *) Julia = Compile[{{z, _Complex}}, Length[FixedPointList[#^3 + zc &, z, 100, SameTest -> (Abs[#] > 2 &)]]]; zc = -0.5 - 0.05 I; DensityPlot[Julia[x + I y], {x, -1.15, 1.15}, {y, -1.15, 1.15}, PlotPoints -> 275, Mesh -> False, Frame -> False, ColorFunction -> (RGBColor[Min[2#^2, 1], Max[2# - 1, 0], Min[2#, 1]] &)];```

This is how you can make this fractal in POV-Ray:
```// runtime: 0.5 second camera{orthographic location <0,0,-1.15> look_at 0 angle 90} plane{z,0 pigment{julia <-0.5,-0.05>,30 exponent 3 color_map{[0 rgb 0][1/3 rgb <0,0,1>][2/3 rgb <1,0,1>][1 rgb 1]}} finish{ambient 1}}```
