This is Newton’s approximation method for finding the roots of a polynomial. It uses the polynomial x^3=1 and counts the number of iterations needed to reach the approximate value of the root. See the tutorial chapter.

This fractal doesn’t have Julia sets, but XaoS is able to generate Julia-like sets which are also very interesting (they are sometimes called “Nova formulae”).
