Pretty pictures. - andydude - 11/17/2009
While I was making complex plots, I usually exported to PDF, then converted PDF to PNG, which made lots of white lines everywhere in the image.I realized that the pictures looked bad when zoomed out, so I rewrote the complex plot function to write directly to a PNG file. The images look much better. See the zip files below. RE: Pretty pictures. - bo198214 - 11/17/2009

Somehow you now chose the worst scenario: a png as attachment inside a zip. Apart from that the pictures look good. What type of plot is it (conformal or contour?) and how is it encoded in colors? How did you compute the 4-roots? RE: Pretty pictures. - andydude - 11/18/2009

Hue[h, s, b] is Mathematica notation for Hue-Saturation-Brightness encoding of colors, I found this function here and used it in my own code: Code: `PrettyHue[Indeterminate] ` The idea is that white = infinity, black = 0, and red = positive real, cyan/blue = negative real, and all other colors represent the angle of the complex number. Roughly speaking, if , then determines the hue, and determines the brightness. I think it is a brilliant way to show complex functions. Much more "smooth" than a contour plot, in my opinion. Sorry I should have said more about each function. So back to the functions. TetraRoot00 is , sorry for the silly name. TetraRoot2 is , which requires a good CAS. TetraPow2 is , which is pretty easy to compute. TetraPow3 is , which is also easy to compute, but slow. TetraPow4 is , which was very slow (attached below). I am currently in the process of trying to work out the complex structure of TetraRoot3, or such that . Its not as "simple" as TetraRoot2, because instead of branch cuts on the real axis, the branch cuts are away from the real axis, I believe you can see this where the zeros are in TetraPow3' and if the derivative is zero, then the inverse function (TetraRoot3) should have a singularity at that point, right? This is TetraPow3': [attachment=649] This is TetraPow4: [attachment=650] RE: Pretty pictures. - andydude - 11/18/2009

Some of the images are >1MB, so it will not let me upload. Apparently there is a 500KB limit on PNGs and 1MB limit on zips... RE: Pretty pictures. - andydude - 11/18/2009
Some more plots. I will try and inline this time... TetraLogE is , I have adopted Kouznetsov's branch structure, since it corresponds to the direction that log "naturally" goes (pun intended): [attachment=651] TetraLogE' is , which I did some Photoshoping on, sorry. [attachment=652] TetraExpE is , using Kouznetsov's expansion at 3i: [attachment=653] TetraExpE' is : [attachment=654] TetraExpE-z is , which shows the fixed-points of tetration as black dots: [attachment=655] |
