Plane

Syntax:(plane integer)

All fractals displayed by XaoS are functions with a complex parameter. They can be be displayed in the normal complex plane where the x coordinate is the real part of the number and the y is imaginary; but they can also be displayed differently:

Normal complex plane (default)

Inversion–infinity is at 0 and 0 is at infinity.

Similar to inversion, but moves the center outside the Mandelbrot set, so it looks parabolic.

Lambda plane and its inversion, and with a different center.

A very interesting mode for the Mandelbrot set, this makes small things large, for easier browsing of the set’s details.

The tutorial about planes has some examples.

In the scripting language, the planes are numbered as follows:

mu

1/mu

1/(mu+0.25)

lambda

1/lambda

1/(lambda-1)

1/(mu-1.40115)
