Complex Newton Iteration for a Cubic Polynomial
The color at a point indicates in which region of the complex plane it lies after
iterations of the map
. This is Newton's method for finding the complex roots of

DETAILS
Snapshot 1: After zero iterations, each point lies in its original region.
Snapshot 2: Nested structure can be seen after three iterations.
Snapshot 3: Intricate patterns develop for higher iterations.
