Hi

At this page:

https://www.jedsoft.org/fun/complex/gallery.html

- I found some images where the author had applied the same function iteratively
on the coordinates corresponding to each pixel. This sometimes creates fractal
like shapes.

I wanted to try to do the same with my library for complex functions. The
attached image is one of the results. I'm using a different coloring scheme
than the author so the colors are not the same.

Here are the functions used for this image:

j = sqrt(-1), Z = re + im*j
G(Z) = (1 + j)*Sin(Z)
F(Z) = G^7(Z) = G(G(G(G(G(G(G(Z)))))))

re and im are the coordinates along the x- and z-axis in the plane.

If anyone is interested in the source code, it can be found here:
