The *Fractal* dropdown menu in the ChaosExplorer program contains 4 menu items:

- z^p + c
- (z^3+1)/(1+cz^2)
- c*e^z, and
- z^3-z^2+z+c

Each of these menu items displays the fractal (z_{0} = 0.0 + 0.0i, varying c over the complex plane). Selecting the first menu item displays the Mandelbrot Set; selecting any of the others displays the fractal for the indicated formula. This post specifically shows the fractal and Julia Sets for the second menu item, whose formula is:

`z`

_{n+1} = (z_{n}^{3} + 1) / (1 + cz_{n}^{2})

Here is the fractal display. This is for the region -10.0 ≤ x ≤ 10.0, -10.0 ≤ y ≤ 10.0:

And here are 4 Julia Set displays for points in this fractal:

As you can see, the fractal and Julia Sets are very different from the Mandelbrot/Multibrot fractals and Julia Sets.
