Fractals from calculations of 2^I, 2^(2^I), 2^(2^(2^I).. a^(a^(...a^I)
Ivars Wrote:While studying this, I have become little puzzled about the way converges. When iterated from z_0=I with a any precision available in PARI, it shows a tri-cycle behaviour, as do many other imaginary numbers (e.g 2*I, 3*I etc. ), if I have made the calculations right.
Hi Ivars -
I've discussed this in some initial state earlier here, but I'm currently with my head elsewhere so too lazy to find the thread.
Here are some plots of that tri-furcation, see uncommented list below.
I find the bi-,tri- and multifurcation an interesting subject, as we ask: can we assign an individual value if the iteration oscillates/is furcated - since this is somehow related to the partial evaluation of non-convergent oscillating series, to which we assign a value anyway. But I don't have a special conclusion for this matter, yet, which were worth to write it down here.
