In the past few years Ingo, Tor Olav and others have played around with 
include files supporting complex numbers for sound and images. Attached 
is an image using a few of 30 plus inbuilt complex functions added to 
the povr fork. Mostly just wrapping the complex functions coming with 
C++11, but sometimes using function names more in line with the existing 
complex includes and POV-Ray's function naming.

In povr, to work with the existing function vm, packing two 32 bit 
floats into a double space as the complex value and all complex function 
code runs at single float accuracy.

The render takes advantage of povr's big jitter and v3.8's ability to 
write png files at a reduced bit depth; I used +fn4 to get the file size 
down to something reasonable. Given the detail the image doesn't 
compress well.
